The paintings being exhibited will include traditional and classic subjects such as a beautiful Oleg Tambulilingan Dancer, Kecak, Baris, Pendet; and other works in a more modern style.
All artists were born and raised in Ubud, the center of classical Balinese art. Talented from birth, all were introduced to art at very young. They explore the island’s rich cultural heritage a
nd express it in their creative paintings. All are actively exhibiting their works in various places Bali and overseas.

The most senior painter is I Dewa Putu Mokoh, 75 years old. He was a student of I Gusti Ket
ut Kobot, whose work was influenced by Rudolf Bonnet (1895-1978). In the 1970’s Mokoh found his own style of painting which is renowned for its simplicity, detail and humor.
