jongkie: Changing the World of Watercolor

Luqman Reza Mulyono or better known to the world as ‘jongkie’ is an artist & illustrator from Kota Wisata Batu, Indonesia. He has been recognized for his unique methods of creating his work that has redefined the use of watercolors. Jongkie combines clear, precise brush strokes with the signature blurring, fading look of watercolor. 

Watercolor has a wet, expressive, and unpredictable character. For instance, if I want to make an expressive and whimsical painting I’ll be using wet on wet technique a lot. Letting the water run freely on the paper and playing with splashes. The result sometimes doesn’t meet the plan, but that is exactly the beauty of watercoloring. When we reach the understanding of watercolor we can easily conquer it.

Jongkie told Bored Panda.

“Fleur de la Cour”


“Leading to Nirvana”


“Down to Earth”

Jongkie has held many exhibitions and workshops in Indonesia and has even become a member of the International Watercolor Society- Indonesia. You can support him by visiting his website, Instagram, and Facebook
