Originally from France, Pascal Hierholz, also known as “Paisi”, is both a Contemporary Artist and Creative Director
in advertising, design, and digital communication. He began his career as an Art Director in
Paris before traveling the world, ticking off major continents along the way. Eventually
enraptured by Indonesia, the artist took up residence in 2010.
His works convey the many settings, experiences, and stories he has accumulated during his
stay in Indonesia and give testament to his deep appreciation for the natural beauty and
culture of the land. As of recently, his artworks have also come to comment on the
sociopolitical climate of the country, giving the opportunity for bold experimentation with
mediums such as oil paint and Chinese ink.
