Pranoto – at Pranoto's Art Gallery, Ubud, Bali

Pranoto was born in a small village outside Solo, Central Java in 1952. He was driven to be an artist from an early age, so he moved to Ubud, Bali in 1974 to pursue his dream. Over the years he has collected his friends' work, which is what led to the establishment of Pranoto's Art Gallery in 1996.

The model sessions running twice a week at the gallery have marked the most productive era of his artistic life. Pranoto has always enjoyed experimenting with different techniques and media, constantly adding new skills to his repertoire. In 2011, an exhibition of 80 charcoal drawings and 20 acrylic paintings was held in Gallery East and Midland Junction Arts Centre in Perth, Western Australia.

He was artist in residence and conducted master classes and model sessions. Pranoto's work reflects his colour sensitivity and passion to capture the presentation of light, which creates a luminous glow to his figures.

Kikuo Mori
Mori's self-portrait

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.

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.
