Dua Tangan Cukup: Actions from Across the Archipelago

A well-known artist makes a poster to raise funds for animal rights organizations.

Ken Pattern’s name is synonymous with pen and ink drawings and lithographs of urban Jakarta landscapes and the people that live within them. His artwork is exquisite and fine; a signature style that no one has been able to reproduce.

Ken, originally from Canada, has been living in Indonesia since 1988 and his love for the country is clearly seen through his works. His recent piece titled Eviction Notice is a poignant reminder of human development encroaching on the environment and was created to raise awareness and support for animal rights organizations. This poster depicts a single orangutan amongst a devastated rainforest, holding an eviction notice in its hand.

This moving poster is currently on sale for Rp.100,000 (unframed) and 100% of the proceeds will go to Jakarta Animal Aid Network (JAAN), an NGO working hard to fight for animal rights in Jakarta and Indonesia. JAAN is the group responsible for putting an end to topeng monyet (masked monkeys) in Jakarta, and are currently rehabilitating the rescued monkeys before their release, among countless other achievements and animal rescue efforts.

Eviction Notice can be purchased at Hadiprana Gallery in Kemang, South Jakarta, as well as The Four Seasons Hotel gift shop until December 28th when they will be closed for renovation.

Grab a copy of Eviction Notice and help to raise funds to support animal rights and welfare in Indonesia! All you need are two hands to make a change.
