Asroel's drawing of a child

Asroel is a talented, 26 year old Javanese Muslim artist, specializing in portrait painting. He recently moved to Bali and has become concerned about what he personally can do to break down the atmosphere of mistrust between people of different faiths. His own life has been an example of breaking down prejudices and barriers: he was born with only one leg and one short arm but no hands. He has throughout his life had to overcome many barriers and prejudices: yet he attended school, trained as an artist and recently married.

Kikuo Mori – Artist and Teacher Mori Art Studio, Ubud, Bali

Kikuo Mori

Kikuo Mori - Artist and Teacher Mori Art Studio, Ubud, Bali The paintings of Kikuo Mori are influenced by his fascination with the 1960s American Pop and Op Art scenes. During his 20 years in Los Angeles he absorbed the aesthetic and philosophical ideas of Modern and Post Modern American Art, Surrealism and Natural Abstract Expressionism. He pays homage to Georgia O'Keeffe, Mexican painter Diego Rivera and French painter Paul Gauguin.

Now living in Bali, he combines the products of his imagination with the natural world via the medium of oil paint and canvas to create luminous surfaces of vibrant, sensuous forms and patterns. His latest works focus on lush landscapes, intimate depictions of flowers, psychic inner mindscapes and local cafe scenes interwoven with psychological tension. Mori’s paintings reflect Bali’s profound animistic energies and mysticism, his California experience and his Japanese Samurai ancestry.

Robert James Hacunda – Bali Based Painter

Robert James Hacunda – Bali Based Painter
A Searching Circus
As a painter with classic roots in art history, and a focus on the study of nature, traveling the past few years absorbing life, art, and culture has profoundly changed not only my art, but myself as well.

I have now settled into spending a large part of the year living and painting in Bali, Indonesia, with the remaining time working in New York. Travel has always been a wonderful way to absorb new information and Bali has been an experience that will forever be imprinted in my mind and in my work. The light, atmosphere, architecture, local art, and lifestyle have become a new story with a language unto its own for me to tell. I find an innocent humor in the life and its people and at the same time a deep respect for its diversity and beauty.

Bali Artist – Linda Buller – Ubud, Bali

Linda Buller - Bali Artist
Australian artist Linda Buller has been working and living in Bali for the last six years. With its disproportionate number of artists Bali is a vortex of creative energy which encourages people to recognize a little of themselves and their talents. Much of her work expresses an intense delight in all that makes us human: laughter, magic, celebration and relationships with all Gods creatures and the planet. Her painting is a joyous celebration of life and energy. She coaxes colours working with both tones and texture in her chosen: acrylic and oils. She manipulates her medium with ease and expertise, blending folding mixing, contrasting brilliants and pastels melting like a perfume in a mist.
