Born in Bali, Darya’s artistic education started at a very young age. He attended the Senior High School of Fine Arts in Bali where he received a structured and rigorous training in theoretical and practical artistic creation. His education continued at the Indonesian Art Institute in Yogyakarta, from which he graduated in 1994. Darya has quickly become a recognized name amongst Indonesia’s young, contemporary and collectable artists. His work has been shown at galleries and exhibitions since 1995, just one year after his graduation. In 1999, he was named as a finalist for the Philip Morris Indonesian Art Award. Again in 2001, he was named a finalist, this time for the IndoFood Art Award. Darya’s work is figurative in style; bold and playful in composition. His paintings engage the viewer, encouraging introspection. Putting acrylic to canvas in his most recent series, Darya sends a complex message to humanity about the development of one’s soul. His work begs us to consider how an individual’s place and time of birth, one’s lineage, gives them freedom or affixes limitations for their future. His recent works focus on a theme of inheritance: our ancestor’s spirits and culture, and parody mankind’s vain attempt at self-denial. Link here.

His works have been exhibited widely, such as 'New Wave in Bengal Art' curated by Pranabranjan Ray, 2005, 'Tale of Two Cities' Birla Academy in 2004, "Migration City, Home' Lalit Kala Academy, Kolkata in 2003 and Triennale, Japan 2001. His first solo show was held at Birla Academy, in 2002. He currently stays and works in Kolkata. Roy Debanjan has created a series of works featuring Gandhi (1869 - 1948), who was revered in India as the"Father of the Nation" and internationally as an icon of a free India. Debanjan's sculptures depict Gandhi in his humble loincloth and shawl normally only worn by the lowliest Indian caste. In sharp contrast, he interacts with symbols of materialism and technological advancement - mobile phones and laptops.
