Indonesian artist Nyoman Suarnata feels that every one of his paintings includes meanings and messages. “There is information about good or bad phenomena”, Nyoman states, “or things which occur inside of me, in my own thinking and feelings, and, also things which happen outside of me. In my environment and my social life. This is the stuff I like to communicate”.

Nyoman doesn’t try to force people into accepting what he thinks and feels. “I only submit topics honestly and off the cuff”, he says, “and show my feelings which come along with this. I try to express myself by talking about some existing environmental and social problems”. As an artist, and within all of his paintings, Nyoman attempts to deliver messages which anyone can read with their own deep capacity to perceive and understand.






1981       Born in Tampak Siring

              Graduated from FSRD in Denpasar, Indonesia

At present, Suarnata is a teacher and artist.

Sutarja a.k.a Pandi is an interesting self taught painter.  Utilizing a technique that evokes ‘street-graffiti’, Pandi is able to create amazing images that portray Balinese lifestyles commenting on the everyday lives. In every painting of his you will always find the little bird hanging somewhere. "It reminds me of my childhood. When I was learning to paint in the verandah of my parents' house, there were birds surrounding me all the time."




Pandi is an autodidact and has participated in several group shows.

    ●  Cafe Des Artistes, Bali


    ●  Women, Vino Venue Gallery, Shanghai

    ●  ARTI11 Den Haag, The Netherlands

    ●  Affordable Art Fair 2011, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Ketna Patel

Ketna Patel is a typical example of globalization. To date, she has lived in three different continents; Africa, Europe and Asia, each more than a decade. No wonder then that her work threads through many realms. Her personal experiences, cultural immigration, observations of popular and high culture, the juxtaposition of external, material worlds on top of inner bewilderment……. To reflect the world, and her part in it, Ketna’s works are usually not minimal affairs.

The intellectual / academic world, for her is limiting, and, in her opinion, has too often been used to justify or substantiate recent artistic expression, including architecture. Man does not live by decree or ideology, but by his or her own sense of purpose. The mass consciousness that belongs to the whole planet is emotive in its outset. First worlds misunderstand third worlds, and the wrath and the insecurity of the latter manifests itself in twisted episodes of contemporary life. More than ever, the world is busy, noisy, and explosive. There is heat in our bodies, from unexpressed words, to heat above us in the skies, from too much synthetic energy.
