DECENTA has been known for the group's exploration using silkscreen as a media, thus initiate the expansion of appreciation towards printmaking in Indonesia.

Other than exploring decorative elements in his prints, Sutanto also adopted forms or figures from Indonesian folk tales and popular icons. Aside from 'lines' as a predominant element, Sutanto's serigraphy also composed from the "cut-paste" of varied images, and the rich use of colors. His artworks often led to a playful, absurd, and surreal meaning, which represent his artistic path that also became an alternative to lyricism tendency in the 1970s Indonesian art and a form of distinctive political aspiration during the New Order era.
