Ida Bagus Made Poleng
Made Poleng is a Bali painting master that very critical to art gallery. He is not easy to release his painting to gallery. Not to do with money. Yes, he is very appreciative on his works himself. But not for materialistical reason. He assumes that painting is just not a “thing”. Made Poleng is sure that there is something spiritual in (his) painting.
The Revival of The Traditional Balinese Paintings
In some decades it seems that traditional Balinese painting was sunk by the popularity of contemporary painting art. But in fact traditional painting has been still existing and developing. In this exhibition we can see the involvement of young artists. It means that there is regeneration of artists in the development of traditional Balinese painting.
