His work, entitled “BOMBARDIR # 5”, responded to the theme “Changes in Current Cultural Realities” given by the organizers. The work was created by a phenomenon in the past year on social media. Covid-19 news seems endless in Indonesia, starting in early March 2020 until entering 2021. Various problems arise, not only related to physical health, but also mental health. In addition, there had also been a change in the dynamics of using social media from being fun to being scary.

Dika also admitted that he was proud to be able to bring Undiksha to be one of the champions in this prestigious competition. However, he emphasized that this achievement did not immediately satisfy him. The future target is to achieve more higher level achievement. He said, ” I hope that other Undiksha students can achieve more higher achievements.” Apart from participating in competitions, Dika had also previously been active in participating in art exhibitions, both locally and nationally.
