Mr. Tumadi has been a batik artist for close to 40 years, who specializes in images of wayang kulit or shadow puppet theatre, a traditional Indonesian performance. He discovered his interest in the intricate patterns in wayang kulit - prevalent in Java.

He and his wife, Anise, decided to make a family business named Tumadi Traditional Batik Painting conducting Batik colouring workshops at schools and community events offering individual and group lessons at the Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced level. "I observed that there were many that do not have experience or skill in waxing but was surprised of how good people are in colouring."
