Kelvin Atmadibrata (Jakarta, Indonesia,1988) recruits superpowers awakened by puberty and adolescent fantasy to assemble formidable armies of outlaws. Equipped by shōnen characters and macho ero-kawaii, his antiheroes contest the masculine and erotica in Southeast Asia. He works primarily with performances, often accompanied by and translated into drawings, mixed media collages and objects compiled as installations.

Kelvin graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) majoring in Interactive Media from School of Art, Design and Media in Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University. He is the co-founder of Sepersepuluh, a performance-focused gallery in the northwest fringe of Jakarta, Indonesia. He is currently based in London, United Kingdom, as a Master of Art student at the Royal College of Art.
