Ida Bagus Lolec: The Artist

Much Loved Local Travel Operator Holds A One Man Show at a Bali Art Gallery.

(10/14/2001) Mr. Ida Bagus Lolec, the Managing Director of Pacific World Travel in Bali might have been lost to the tourism industry forever if he had remained with his first career as a Balinese journalist. In fact, such are his skills of the multi-talented "Lolec," that many suspect his success as a leading light in Bali tourism might have been equaled as a cartoonist with a leading newspaper.

His brilliant caricatures of people and events, executed with lightning speed, are treasured by friends and colleagues around the world. There are also those of us, who quickly lock away Lolec's overly accurate "gift" portraits mercilessly highlighting those flaws and shortcomings in our personae.

A collection of drawing by Ida Bagus Lolec will be held from October 21 - 10 November at Paros Gallery on Jalan Pantai Purnama, Banjar Pala in Sukawati. The theme adopted for the one-man show of more than 40 of Lolec's works is the "Dancing Soul" - depicting street scenes both in Bali and overseas, daily life of the Balinese people, and his humorous caricatures.
