Obie is a label founded by Indonesian artist Tobing Dewi.
Using mainly ink and watercolours, Dewi expresses herself through abstract drawings with strong monochrome and shading effects. She draws inspiration from her daily life, often focussing on feelings and relationships. Her figures characterise her unique perspective – the long necks, small eyes, disproportionate torsos at once make the personalities feel firmly relatable.
Dewi applies her drawings to various media to create prints, scarves, stickers and other products springing from her inspirations. Most of her products are limited editions.
