Invited to Indonesia by the French Institutes for several weeks to present his work in serigraphy, Loustal decided to transform his trip into a work which would combine sketches, watercolors, and paintings. In Java, in the jam-packed markets of Yogyakarta, he says his first strong image was one of two black monitor lizards fighting over a dead fish in a basin. He is also known for his Japanese exercises, drawn each morning of the Merapi volcano, Java's enfant terrible - the glowing clouds and gushing lava which transforms the landscape, the mood of the rice fields.
