Maya Ubud Resort & Spa in Ubud will host a solo painting exhibition by I Ketut Teler, "Welcome to Paradise" from January 8 - February 8, 2011.
Teler will show 22 unique works of art expressing the theme of 'welcome" via representations of costumes, culture, tradition & religions found in Bali. The paintings reveal the various forms of acculturation and cultural adaptation that co-exists harmoniously in Bali.
Born in 1971 in the village of Bangli, Bali, Teler graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts Indonesia(ISI)
in Denpasar. Since 1992, he has been active in group exhibitions at a number of galleries and museums in Bali, Yogyakarta and Jakarta. He has participated in The Artist Residence
in Boston, USA in 1995. In the same year he was awarded the First Prize Kamasra
by the ISI
Since 2002, Teler has been interested in icons and Buddhism, a fact often reflected in his works. He pursues the philosophy of Mahayana Buddhism, and the rituals of Vajrayana. "Through the middle way, I want to search and find the essence of dualism, which is able to bring about an attitude of tolerance and harmony in life. The middle way - it also inspires a lot of my works," he said.
Teler's inspirational works can be viewed throughout his current exhibition in the lobby of Maya Ubud Resort & Spa
from January 8 - February 8, 2011.
