Art, I believe is something that capable of shaking one's emotions, of making one's feelings tremble in the face of beauty. These feelings are, of course, abstract in character, their quality relative to each person. In my life I try to see every aspect of existence as an element.

comment from BIDADARI :

He graduated from The Department Communication Design, Faculty of Fine Art And Design, At The Indonesian Institute Of Art in Yogyakarta in 1990.

Upon graduating, he worked as a designer, making calendars, banners, billboards, and leaflets, all the while continuing to paint.
How ever, the artistic impulses which flowed so fiercely through his blood made it difficult for him to endure for long in the design world. He felt unable to freely pour out his expression and his obsession with art. Finally in 1998 Agung Mangu Putra decided to devote his life to painting.
