Hi, I’m Zulfirman, but most people call me Jul. I am a fine artist from Padang, West Sumatra, Indonesia. I studied at ISI Jogja, and worked as a career fine artist and member of the Sakato Art Community in Jogja for nearly two decades. I immigrated to Christchurch, New Zealand in January 2019 with my wife and our young son. Two months after we arrived, my son and I sustained a multitude of injuries in the Christchurch Mosque Attacks. While my ability to produce art slowed down significantly during my recovery, I have since resumed painting regularly and looking forward to continuing my work here in Ōtautahi for the foreseeable future. I am currently creating large-scale contemporary abstract work and favour acrylic on canvas. For all enquiries, contact Home Gallery Fine Arts, where you can check out my artist profile as well.
