Doa I, is one of series of Doa II, III. Much of Handi’s works deal with themes of change. Not only in the environment but also in individual and collective social behaviours. His paintings reveal a layered exploration of stylised influences that he combines boldly. From tribal art to post-modernist ideas as well as energy often found in Brut Art styles. The same themes are explored throughout his mixed media and sculptures.
‘Doa’ translates as ‘Prayer’. Prayer is the essence of worship in the form of a request that is carried out at any time by humans.
