Linkan Adinda Palenewen.
A self taught artist and a fashion designer who always gets her inspiration mostly by observing people on the streets, movies, talented artists, surroundings, and any real life experiences.
She was not sure to make this blog at first. She was too worried about what people will think of a rookie like her who dares to make a blog to exhibit her works. But then she pushed herself to make this blog, not only for her portfolio, but also for self improvement.
She always has interest about art and fashion --though, she never knew she could draw portraits until a friend of her once showed her drawing of a random model and she was like "WOW! That's really cool" then she tried to make one at home. Once she's home she opened one of the fashion magazines and found the right object. Kenzo 2009 Ads Campaign was her very first trial. Satisfied with the result, she --herself couldn't believe that she finally made it. And as you might guess, She's in love with portrait drawings and fashion illustration ever since.
It was hard to find a meaningful word for this blog especially the one that could represent her artworks until she found and chose to use Agapeton as the blog title. Agapeton is a Greek word, means Beloved. Agapeton represents her love for (not only) the art itself, but also her love she gives to the Objects she draws. Her love to her family, friends, favorite musicians, pets, her passionately love about Fashion, and many more. "This is the way I gather my 'beloved ones' together, by making them into one package of Artworks." she said.
Her Passion of Fashion
She's already into fashion since she was a kid but never thought to make it as a career. She loved checking her mom's closet and tried her dresses and some of her stuff on, not only to make her look like a grown up but also because she loved to spot some cool detail there.
As a grown up she takes fashion seriously by taking 1 year course in one of fashion schools in Jakarta. For her (and maybe for some of you) 1 year was not an enough time to learn everything she needs about fashion. She planned to study more about fashion in USA but it never happened because soon after she finished her course she got her first job in Bali.
It was in 2011 and since then she's been working for some garment/fashion companies not only from Bali, but also from UK and Australia, together with some well experienced designers, fashion stylists, and photographers. That's when she really started to learn and still is learning more and more about fashion.
She has no boundaries in this industry which makes her flexible to work in any kind of fashion companies with any different kind of signatures.
