Dikenal lewat penggambaran-penggambaran hibridanya antara tubuh manusia dengan burung sebagai puncak kepala, Arya Pandjalu banyak melakukan pencerminan atas hadir dan terus berkembangnya cara hidup organik folkspeople di tengah masyarakat kita. Menggabungkan cara bercerita pribadi dengan cara bercerita berkelompok pada masyarakat, Pandjalu menyodorkan manusia sebagai bagian dari dunia mahluk hidup yang bertumbuh, menempati sisi berseberangan dengan aktivitas mekanis ciptaannya sendiri. Penggambaran Pandjalu menjadi semacam ruang jeda reflektif yang membayangkan dunia serba bercampur dan lesap antara kegiatan manusia dengan alam sederhana di sekitarnya, selagi juga menyiratkan kehalusan kontrastif. Sebagaimana ia dengan halus mensimulasi warna-warna organik di alam dalam tekanan nada pastel yang sesungguhnya sintetik.

Better known for his hybridized depictions of bird-headed men, Arya Pandjalu often looks into the existence, growth, and organic adaptibility of the common-rural folk in its increasingly urbanised surroundings. Combining personal story telling with that of the people’s, Pandjalu puts the human subject forward in its conjunction among other living creatures in nature, vis-a-vis with his own mechanized activities. Pandjalu’s depictions becomes some sort of a reflective interstice, which imagines the world as thoroughly interweaved, hybridised between man’s activities with his simple natural surroundings, while also implying a subtle contrast through his way of emulating organic colours in nature, that are synthetic in pigment.
