|Krijono began studying painting under the guidance of an art critic Kusnadi. In 1971, he enrolled in the painting program at Indonesia College of Fine Arts (ASR I) in Yogyakarta. However, he dropped out of the school and chose to travel to Japan, Belgium, Australia, France and Thailand. His works are documented in the books Great Charcoals by Indonesia Artist Krijono (1997) and Krijono: The Flying Elephand (2000).
The artist who was born in Jakarta in 1951 differentiates himself with his signature brightly coloured compositions. He took many different themes and experimented with various mediums including batik, oil and acrylic. His expressive and flamboyant works have been exhibited extensively around the world, including Italy and Paris. His works are also in the collection of the Indonesian Presidential Palaces in Jakarta and Bali.
