In honour to Iwan Tirta's journey as a maestro from the beginning to the present, #Mataguru2020 is a story about a complete achievement, yet about a perspective of Iwan Tirta as an apprentice yet a maestro in the journey of batik as an Indonesian heritage.#Mataguru2020 runway show will be presented in 3 sequences that is inspired by chapters in traditional puppet show (wayang) also as used by Iwan Tirta himself in his book. The upcoming #Mataguru2020 collection series is adapted from the journey of Iwan Tirta to preserving the art of batik as written in his book, “Batik, A Play of Light and Shades”. The Batik patterns that are incised in an array of the collections, inspired by parts from his book, which is Talu, Adeg Jejer, and Adeg Sabrang. Seeing Batik as part of a sacred art from Javanese Royal Kingdom, Iwan Tirta is giving his perspective regarding the batik art through “Wayang Kulit” or shadow puppet performance. Just like a puppeteer or so-called "dalang", the late Iwan Tirta continuously desires to give a personal touch to the art of batik. The personal touch that he passed on, is mainly influenced from the rich cultural milestones of his formative years and of his subsequent experiences as a batik designer.
