Agus was awarded an outstanding merit award: Pratita Adhikarya for Sculptering pottery and painting and a sample of his work is featured in the National Gallery of Indonesia in Jakarta. From 1975-1980 he was active in the Movement 'Sanggar Bambu', and participated in various joint exhibitions in Yogyakarta. from 1990 his energy and talent was directed at constructing a unique tourist spot known as the Delta Gecko Village, which unfortunately was destroyed during the 2006 West Java Tsunami.

Talented in contemporary mixed media and ceramic mozaic genres, Agus is inspired by the works of Antonio Gaudi.
