'It is an age-old rhythm from our ancestors but adapted to go along with a new rhythm, the rhythm to which we all dance.'

Steven Towirjo creates ceramic sculptures inspired by the rich multi cultural society he was raised in. His sculptures, which are made in predominantly natural earthy hues, are strongly influenced by his own Javanese culture with the addition of motifs from other cultures as well. The artist aims to create works of art in shapes that are authentic, but also contemporary. Having the privelege to experience the world from different perspectives, living within a society made up of a great variety of cultures representative of the world past and present, and all that has been passed on to this generation by our ancestors, are all elements reflected in the work of Towirjo. It is important that we cherish our heritage and that is what he tries to express through his work. It is a celebration, as his guru (teacher) once beautifully said : "It is an age-old rhythm from our ancestors but adapted to go along with a new rhythm, the rhythm to which we all dance".
