"My childhood memories of Semarang with its multiculturalism shaped me as a person."
"My name is Agus Indra Gunawan, but people call me Duly. I was born in Semarang, Central java on August 5, 1979, as an only child. My parents are of mixed Chinese and Javanese ancestry who come from small regencies in Central Java, Kebumen and Purworejo. My childhood memories of Semarang with its multiculturalism shaped me as a person.
"I feel so grateful for having both parents who taught me that, through hard work, everything is achievable. They never let me quit on anything. We overcame so many obstacles together during my childhood, then finally we decided to move to Jakarta, the big capital city of Indonesia.
"After I graduated with a degree in economics, I felt that something was missing in my life. My lifelong passion for art and design always excited me, as quoted from Karl Von Clausewitzwith: 'Pursue one great decisive aim with force and determination.'"
