Eko Bintang is a Taurean born in May 17th, 1984. He’s an Illustrator and Art Director based in Jakarta Indonesia.
He always been interested in drawings since he was a kid and then grew up with drawing as his passion. earlier days when Eko Bintang was in elementary school, his text books were filled with drawings and sketches of strange pop-up-ideas, funny faces of friends or person that he’d been infatuated with and then even some of his friends would buy him lunch by asking Eko to drew them something in their text books. With his drawings, Eko had also made apologies & confesses his feelings.. that’s when he realized that Illustrations are a useful media to get messages across.
“I’ve always fascinated with how a person interact within themselves ..our inner conversations ..our inner struggles ..our inner dances & songs ..I believe with the idea that we are one big unfinished puzzles and we always try to find that missing pieces to complete ourselves but never will..” ,Eko explained about things that motivate his work.
Recently his work has been featured in many Indonesia’s fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Cosmo Girl, Dewi, Amica and Nylon Guys.
