Professor Ignatius Widiapradja was born in Indonesia. Currently, he is an associate professor of art at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, where he has been teaching since 1985. From 2001-2008, Professor Widiapradja was the president of Srivijaya International, LLC, an importing company of Asian antiques and arts, and owner of Padma Gallery. Since 2012, he has been on leave for two years to work as a design and corporate consultant for Matahari Terbit, a gold jewelry manufacturer in Indonesia.

Professor Widiapradja's primary creative works are in painting and digital print. He has exhibited his works in competitive and invitational exhibitions nationally and in selected invitational exhibitions in Southeast Asia, Canada, New Zealand, and Austria. His works have been exhibited in selected museums and galleries such as the Museum of Contemporary Craft, New York City; Kunstlerhaus Palais, Bregensz, Austria; and University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu. In addition to his fine art works, he has done graphic design projects for selected clients.

Professor Widiapradja tells us this about his work:

"In my work, the articulation of images and spatial construction form a cohesive multidimensional reality that exhibits a state of constant flux. It is the mapping of overlapping memories, future projections, and multidimensional processes of awareness. Images, events, feelings, desire, and space in our memories happen simultaneously and are inseparable and intertwined. They are mosaics of space-time continuum."
