Daniel Watkins, A.K.A. Rad Dan, launched ‘Preservative’ in The Slow’s gallery space of Room 13 on Saturday the 26th of January to resounding applause of the island. A Sydney born pop-artist, Watkins is renowned for his unimaginable artworks blending 70’s cartoonography and Warhol obscurity and colour. Having exhibited in L.A., Europe, Japan and Australia, Room 13 marked Daniel’s first exhibition in Indonesia. The collection of work presented beds a footprint on a neo-expressionist view of celebratory self-destruction, which is rivalled with a ‘justification to reward’. Fast, ignominious, forced to last. Racing, sweaty, thoughts of self-entitlement. The launch night was soundtrack-ed by Brooklyn DJ, Rahill of Habibi fame.
