Asian Christian Art Association ( ACAA )   Wisnu Sasongko: Indonesia

One day a young painter contacted us via email. Since that time, less then a year, the office of ACAA has already moved from Kyoto, Japan to Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Wisnu Sasongko is a young painter interested in works with the spirit of Christianity. The situation in Indonesia, which has undergone multidimensional crisis, causes events of violence everywhere. This situation has encouraged Wisnu Sasongko and his colleague Surajiya to hold an exhibition with title "The lost of Love, I come as a messenger of Love". Some of Sasongko's works are here for us to enjoy.

Dialogue from Within

Look, the world is getting darker in desire
And their souls soar releasing their pain
Why am I here ?
Who am I ?

Only soft whispering grace,
"You are the image of gentleness, peace and beauty
for that purpose I sent you, go!"
Though I am only a dust, I will be ready

I was born of sincerity
Conceived in a womb of beauty
Coming as the messenger of love

by Wisnu Sasongko
