Panca DZ adalah seorang perupa yang tinggal dan bekerja di Bandung. Ia lulus dari program studi Desain Produk, Fakultas Seni Rupa dan Desain Institut Teknologi Bandung. Apresiasi Panca ter- hadap sejarah tato membawanya kepada satu penelitian lebih dalam tentangnya. Meneruskan pengamatannya atas tato Indonesia tradisional, Panca meneliti tato- tato kriminal di Indonesia. Sejak tahun 2010, bersama dengan Rumah Cemara— sebuah lembaga non-profit yang berfokus pada isu HIV dan narkoba—Panca terlibat dengan banyak program sosial.

Sejalan dengan riset tato, Panca men- coba mengumpulkan bahasa kebanggan yang sekaligus putus asa dalam rupa yang gelap, yang diisi simbolisme dan cerita, yang muncul dari bentuk-ben- tuk renggutan kehidupan. Tema yang sedemikian rupa selalu memukai Panca, tentang bagaimana tato dan persentuhan sosial dapat mencerminkan keindahan dalam bertahan hidup di dunia.

Panca DZ is an Indonesian artist whom currently lives and works in Bandung, Indonesia. Graduated from Faculty of Art and Design at Institute of Technology Bandung, majoring in Product Design. Panca’s appreciation in the history of tattoo brought him to a deeper research towards it. Following his observation of traditional Indonesian tattoo, Panca continue to research criminalization tattoos in Indonesia. Since 2010, together with Rumah Cemara, a non-profit organization focusing on HIV and drugs related issues, Panca has been involved in social programs towards the issues.

Along with the tattoo research, Panca is trying to collect these proud and desperate languages of dark visual that overloaded with symbolism and story, arising from cruel form of deprivation. This has always fascinates Panca, how tattoos and social engagement could reflect the beauty of surviving the world.
