Are you into Astrology or anything that is attached to the system of horoscopes that explain about person’s personality and predict future events in their life based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other celestial objects at the time of their birth? If you do, we have news for you to read. Visual artist known as Yaviz Basalamah started to write about Astrology back in September of 2013. And since then he has decided to make a special blog and make posters to go with the posts as well known as “Yaviz Astrology”. Just days ago he celebrated the 100th poster and wrote a short behind the journey. Below is the short description about his blog.

Finally reached my 100th poster or writing post! Not that I was planning to end it here, but I thought that if I could make it to at least 100, then I will know that with strong enough will and commitment, anything can be possible! Looking back, I did not know how all this will unfold. Although I guess that is what usually happens anyway when we decide to follow an inspiration. All I knew was that I wanted to express my inspirations in a way that is more than writing. So I figured making a poster for each post would help convey even more of what I wanted to express.

There were moments when I could not find inspiration. In those moments I try to step back and look for inspirations in new and different places. And the rewarding feeling that comes from knowing that I have tried my best to express myself as well as share some of my inspirations along the way is priceless. I guess it is really true, expressing ourselves through writing can open our mind more to things that we could not see before when they were just thoughts in our head.

Yaviz Basalamah is a visual artist most known for signature eyes that can be seen in all of his works. He mainly prefers to work with acrylic on canvas, but at times likes to combine other mediums such as grain gels and markers along with the acrylic. His inspirations often come from music, fashion, or movies that he can personally relate to. He also gets pleasure from retelling old stories through his works in ways that can be relevant for today. He was born on October 20th 1985 in Surabaya, Indonesia. Yaviz began exhibiting his works in 2005, two years after he came back to his hometown from studying at the Australian International Academy in Melbourne, Australia. He later completed a Communication Design course in 2007 from Billy Blue College of Design in Sydney.

So far Yaviz has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Surabaya, Jakarta and Bali. He also decided to follow artistic inspirations he finds in fashion by launching his own clothing brand, The Y Label. The brand debuted in 2011 with a collection of shirts and ties for men inspired by Yaviz’s love for bold colours and geometric patterns. Since December of 2012, Yaviz has been exploring his keen interest in astrology. Initially to learn more about himself, but gradually turned into spiritually inspired writing in the hope of sharing more positive spirit that can uplift and inspire the collective consciousness. Yaviz works with Western astrology and gets most of his inspirations from the Moon’s transits through the zodiac and aspects the Moon makes to other planets on the way.
