Illustration as part of art works has often been considered a form of low art, but as it has progressively become more developed, it has established a decent place in the art community. This paper focuses on how Indonesian punk artist succeed expanding the art of illustration in Indonesia as well as building local and global networking through the art of illustration, with Kenterror as a role model. He did well in elaborating his punk identity and everyday issues (social, politics, and economy) either local or global scale, and then transform these subjectivities through his own imagination into the art of illustration. Authors will discuss the early development of Indonesian illustration, the pressures that compelled Indonesian illustrators to move on, and the influence of punk.
