Arahmaiani (Arahmayani Feisal, born May 21, 1961) is an Indonesian artist born in Bandung and based in Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia.

She studied at Bandung Institute of Technology, then in Sydney, Australia and Enschede, Holland.[1]

Though best known as a performance artist,[2][3] she also employs painting, drawing, sculpture, video, poetry, dance, and installation.[4] The thematic material of her work is diverse, but it often focuses on the oppression of women's bodies by men, religion in modern society, Western commercial imperialism, and global industrialization.[5]

She exhibited in the Indonesian pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2003.[6]
