Glimpses of The Last Paradise

An Exhibition of Paintings by Christiaan Lupgens


The popular Ubud restaurant and Bar, Bridges Bali, is hosting a painting exhibition of water colors and works in oil by the veteran Dutch artists Christiaan Lupgens, commencing on Thursday, July 26, 2012 at 5:00 pm.

Glimpses from the Last Paradise” is both the title of the current exhibition and the way in which Lupgens has long described his adopted home of Bali.

Born in Rotterdam in 1933, Lupgens began painting at age 14 taught by a Catholic priest. After completing high school he continued his arts studies focusing on both painting and sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam. Upon completing his tertiary studies, he worked for many years in the advertising world with assignments in Holland, Spain, Kenya, Singapore and Indonesia.

Adamant in his admiration for Bali, Lupgens credits the island of Bali with being his muse for the past 15 years while living in his “last paradise.” While he has exhibited his work widely around the world, the Ubud exhibition will represent his first solo exhibition in Ubud.

A portion of the proceeds from “Glimpses of the Last Paradise” will be donated to Bali Kids – a community organization providing assistance to sick and orphaned children in Bali. The group provides assistance to some 7,000 children each year through educational and medical services, including essential treatment for the growing number of children afflicted with HIV in Bali.

“Glimpses from the Last Paradise” will run for three months and is coordinated by Claude Chouinard of The Bridges as part of the restaurants continuing commitment to the community and the promotion of arts in Bali.
