"Truth is often disputebut never defeated."
Suhardjono, or Djon, Affandi's assistant, who was present at the creation of every Affandi painting from 1963 until the artist's death in 1990, knows the truth. A memoir of life with a great artist from the perspective of a simple man thrust by circumstance into the world of international art, Witnessing Affandi is the final victory of truth regarding Affandi’s body of work.
