‘Hobbit’ is a small, human-like character with hairy feet, created by J. R. R. Tolkien for his epic novel ‘The Lord of the Rings’. The travel sac carried by these imaginary creatures inspired us to design a smaller version of ‘Hobo Tote’. The multiple handles allow it to be carried as a shoulder bag or carry-on tote. For ultimate convenience, there is a deep hanging pocket on its interior for storing keys and cards.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
This print edition features the artwork ‘Daynite’ by Farand Rasyid Hazfanur, our 2020 artist in residence. Farand Rasyid Hazfanur (16 years old) is a gifted young painter with a Cerebral Palsy disability. Cerebral Palsy does not prevent Farand Rasyid Hazfanur from augmenting his talents in contemporary art. This birth condition prompts severe life challenges. Farand endures disabilities in mobilizing almost all of his body parts and in speaking. After numerous visits to several hospitals and rehabilitation centres, Farand gradually discovers his passion for painting.

Farand grows up within a caring family environment which gives him unconditional love and confidence in his artistic gifts. His work touches upon humanitarian topics that resonate closely to his heart. For example, on family, environment, social issues, inspiring profiles, or his emotional reactions towards something that he sees. In the process, Farand takes the time to prepare a set of colours for expressing these specific topics. Sometimes this colour-selection process takes about a week or more. He uses his left fingers to paint, as holding a brush would be an impossible task in his condition. His medium is acrylic paint on canvas.

Despite his physical limitations, his sensitivity in art unveils extra-ordinary achievements. Galeri Nasional in Jakarta selected and exhibited his paintings. He had a solo exhibition in October 2018 and joined the art show 'Colorful Things' in 2018 at Hadiprana Art Centre. Farand received the 'Character Award' in painting kites at Hadiprana Art Centre.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVE:

Our core objective is to support and nurture the artist's creative potential during this residency period. We curate his artwork to manifest a collection of limited edition prints, from Giclée to other wearable art pieces which light our homes and delight our souls.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Due to our hand-made serigraphy process, every printing on each product is unique and varied from one to another. It is impossible to choose the printing of each product to be exactly the same on the showcased photos on our site or social media. These photos are for visual references of the products’ shapes only. The colours and alignments will never be the same from one print to another due to this manual labour.
