Maya Ubud Resort & Spa presents a solo painting exhibition by a young, talented Ubud artist - I Wayan Suarmadi through January 31, 2005.
Born in Bali's arts community of Ubud, Wayan Suarmadi started painting while still in elementary school. He was inspired by both his great grandfather, I Wayan Gerudug, and his grandfather I Wayan Durus, both well-known and distinguished painters in the traditional Balinese style. Naturally gifted and growing up surrounded by painters in his extended family, Wayan went on to further perfect his craft studying for one year under I Nyoman Daging.
Early recognition was achieved in 1992 when he won second place in a national painting competition in Jakarta held by the Ministry of Tourism, Post and Telecommunications.
Painting in acrylics, Wayan expresses his admiration of the beauty of nature and all God's creations while at the same time urging the preservation and protection of our natural environment.
The exhibition is open daily through Monday, January 31, 2005 at the Maya Ubud Resort and Spa.
