Agus Baqul Purnomo's career really began to take off when he started painting numbers. (You can read about that here.) He also paints words, phrases, letters and Arabic Calligraphy and you'll find many beautiful examples of the calligraphy at the Annexe Gallery. Some installation shots from his Solo Show at Trembi Contemporary give you a sense of scale and then, see three gorgeous number paintings here. Looking at the images from his 2009 Show at Valentine Willie Fine Art, I'm amazed at the commitment he's brought to his oeuvre and the breadth of serious experimentation.
