My name is Niken Priyono, even though I have always been interested in art, specifically painting, I just started doing it on a regular basis three years ago, therefore I'm a newbie in this field. At this point, I don't know where my art journey will take me, for now I do it because i love it! You can check out some of my work on https://www.instagram.com/the_series_by_niken/ (will be launch May 14th)
My Phing-Thing "two sides of the story" is my take on the fact that everyone, despite their happy outward appearance, have something sad, traumatic or broken inside that they are keep hidden from the world. The heart balloon represent hope, that no matter how bad you feel that there is always hope. I thought this would suit the charity that we are supporting really well, considering the fact that War Child helps children from war torn area, give them hope and try to give them their happiness and childhood back that was lost during the war.
