Artist research – Dexa Muamar

Dexa Muamar is a typographer from Malang, Indonesia.

Compared to the other typographers I have been researching Muamar is much more of a black and white artist as their work is often just black and white and rarely ever does it have colour and when it does it is a subtle amount, like having a one colour background or having one word a different colour. Their more recent work is unique in a different way though, it is tiny, I have never seen another artist do such long inspirational quotes on such a scale and have such an impact.

The reason I decided to research this artist because of the style of plans the writing and how I thought it could fit well into an old fashioned typographic piece, but after thinking about it I think that a tiny piece of could be a new way I could progress it. Most people think bigger is better when it comes to making people take notice, however the opposite might also work, in some cases a tiny piece might move and influence someone more than a huge piece.
