Widodo Kabutdo is a talented young artist born in Tegal, Central Java, Indonesia in 1982. In 1996 he moved with his entire family to Cimahi, West Java. Then in 2009 with his wife and two children moved and settled in Ubud Bali. He has an artistic talent since childhood. If his creative ability gets self-taught. The experiment in the art process is a dynamic form of anxiety. He tends to explore the depths of his own imagination, then contribute to the form of respos against social and cultural issues which in turn make it an art form for his understanding. Widodo is an artist who never stops to express his artistic creativity by exploring different materials to create a new aesthetic. With it as an alternative space, public space, and gallery space for meetings with the community. Art installations, performing arts and drawings are always a package in his work. Widodo's plastic artwork is the result of an accident while experimenting with the use of plastic bags as a medium for painting. In 2005 he applied for the art sound effect of a plastic bag for an Art Camp Disaster of Art project. Plastic therapy experiments were followed by 500 local children on post-tsunami victims at Pangandaran beach, West Java. Widodo's starting point in the work can not be separated from the very touching, tragic, and depressing events. So ironically is the landslide that occurred in the village itself in Cimahi, Bandung, where he grew up. Lantaknya crops and agricultural land area for housing in the surrounding area requires a lot of casualties. Seeing the incident seems to be a reflection that makes it very deep into the artistic process. Collecting, washing, choosing, cutting, tearing, sticking, slapping, recycling, unworthy goods into artwork that has high aesthetic value and being able to compete through the space and space art institute is a very challenging and requires tremendous hard work and mentality . It is precisely the challenge that makes him more reckless and anxious to spill his expression deeper. In the last 3 years, Widodo has completed many plastic waste works. An interesting reason for him is when he brings plastic waste as an art object that has a correlation with "
