Still holding on to what it firmly believes, Catalyst Art Market brought back their sixth creative bazaar last weekend to expose more local artists to the public. Here's what went down on the eventful bazaar.

Catalyst Art Market hosted its sixth volume at South Jakarta last weekend, where it showcased numerous artwork, illustrations, and craftwork from both emerging and established local talents. This year, Catalyst Art Market adapted the theme #MyArtMyLiving, reflecting on the integral role of art in our lives.

From its conception, Catalyst Art Market aims to expose emerging and new talents to the creative scene. Raymond Malvin, co-founder of Catalyst Arts (a neighbourhood art and coffee shop) believes that there has been a positive growth in the appreciation of arts and visuals in the current culture. Thus, Catalyst Art Market was born in response to this growth, as well as providing an opportunity for creative enthusiasts alike to explore various forms of crafts.

An array of products was displayed in the two-day market, boasting their unique and pleasing aesthetics respectively, striking a pleasant and satisfying artistic hodgepodge. Aside from art products, the market also features a handful of food & beverages stalls, such as ice cream sandwich and coffee stalls, so that visitors could have a break from their rigorous shopping time. Thanks to Substorea group of vinyl DJs, the experience was further enhanced by their music, which permeated across the market, enlivening the ambience. Duo AriReda was last to perform, as they closed this year’s Catalyst Art Market with their mellifluous and romantic flare.
