phantasmagoric abstractions

Aisha Diandra / photographer. artist. designer. likes to dress up & pose, not a model. horror aficionado.
This blog is for my art, expression, inspiration, ramblings & everything in between.
I like the strange & spooky, beautiful & sensual, surreal & grotesque. contradictions fascinate me.

Finally got around to doing some new #pretty #nails. Inspired by @rromaninmua ‘s recent #nailart post, I decided to do something a little different, a little #abstract #art over off-white base. Here are my latest #nailsoftheweek 😊 #nailpolish #glitter #speckle #makeup #aishadiandra #jakarta #indonesia

#rain outside our #hotel room. So nice to sit on the #porch in this weather. Reminds me of Bali, without all the tourists. 👍 #holiday #jogjakarta #jogja #yogyakarta #asia #indonesia #rumahmertuahotel

At #borobudur #buddhist #temple in #Jogja today. Upside of being an airhead & forgetting to charge my camera & bring said charger is I have photos on my phone and can post a few shots before I upload all the photos on Facebook later. #jogjakarta #buddhism #indonesia #holiday #culture #asia (at Candi Borobudor)

Come support me and other local creatives at Kemang Icon every Saturday!

Starting Next Saturday, 25 January, I will be regularly displaying my photography, art, and Dearly Departed Designs accessories at Kemang Klub’s POOL PARTY event. 

Anything I display will be available for purchase, and there will be other artists & designers showcasing their creations too.

So if you’re in Jakarta on a Saturday, come on by and have a drink, look at & buy some work, listen to local DJs, and take a dip in the pool if you’re up for it!

so, according to Indonesia, I’m Lady Gaga? um, okay then, I totally see the resemblance. (not even a little bit, actually). seriously, I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve had random Indonesians call me Lady Gaga both in Bali and Jakarta (and I’ve only been in Jakarta since 6pm yesterday…). Lolwhut?

also, I will say after over an hour of dancing around my room in my underwear listening to Die Antwoord, and sweating despite it being air conditioned, that I think it does count as legitimate exercise. I’ll have to do it more often.
