One of Indonesia’s most celebrated artists, Affandi lived and worked in a wonderfully quirky riverside house-come-studio, about 6km east of the town centre. Today his former home is the Affandi Museum, which has an extensive collection of his paintings, including some astonishing self-portraits and personal items. Check out his car, a real boy racer’s dream: a lime-green and yellow customised 1967 Galant car with an oversized rear spoiler.

There’s a great little cafe here, and Affandi’s artistic touch even extends to the mushullah (prayer room), which occupies a converted horse carriage, painted in technicolour tones – it looks like a psychedelic gypsy cart. Catch bus 1A to reach this museum from Jl Malioboro.
