I Made Widya Diputra was born in 1981, Indonesia
Graduated from Sculpture Department, Indonesian Institute of Art, Yogyakarta.
In making artworks, I Made Widya Diputra, or mostly known as ‘Lampung’, accustomed himself to make sketches/designs first, then creating a small-scale mock up in the next step. The mock up itself is usually lack of details. Not until he comes to making the framework or the body (mostly using resin material), Lampung furthermore prepared his sculpture rigorously, by paying more attention to the construction and weighing more about its composition. Only on the final phase, he worked on the details and complex ornament, when he starts coating the body of the sculpture. His special attention to details and ornaments cannot be detached from Balinese tradition when preparing the offerings or making crafts. The using of various materials in offerings preparation and skills yet perseverance in making it has brought Lampung to explore more materials in making his sculptures.
Lampung is almost always experimenting new techniques and materials. For him, experimenting process plays an important role. He has been very intense in processing silicon as material in making sculpture. Silicon squeeze in forms of small spherical objects decorates the surfaces of his sculpture.
