I had never heard of Affandi before, but he was one of Indonesia's most famous artists. He lived and worked in Yogyakarta from 1945 in a self-designed house, which is now a museum housing many of his paintings, as well as works by his daughter (also a well-known painter) and other local artists.
The design of the complex was inspired by the natural world. Check out the roof in the first exhibition gallery, which is built at a sloping angle so that the roofline resembles a leaf. To me the ceiling rafters look like cells from plants (the green color certainly helps with this impression).
