Orthya Manuputty (1992) is a visual artist based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

​Ever since she was a little girl, she was fascinated by the power of images and had a love for anything visual. 

She graduated in July 2018 from the AKV. Sint Joost, Art Academy in Breda.


After her bachelor education, she decided to go further on her graduation project about her Moluccan cultural heritage and the Moluccan society.

So she traveled back to the Moluccan Islands to do more visual research. 

As an insider of the Moluccan community, she wants to show outsiders how mysterious and beautiful her culture can be. 


Her experiences from her travels to the Moluccan Islands are what inspires her the most. "I get inspired by my Moluccan roots, the people around me, strangers I meet and the places I visit." 

She has the unique ability to see beauty in anything and anyone she encounters through her lens.
