PAINTING OF BALI
 
Another important Yogya-educated Balinese artist is the painter Made Wianta (53). Contrary to most of his Balinese colleagues, asserting his Balinese identity is not to him a problem of real importance. Made Wianta first came to attention of the Indonesian with black and white works after a stay with Balinese traditional artists: shapeless monsters, nameless forms, the hidden sides of Bali suddenly spurt out as the obsessive expression of a strongly individualized artist. But in the middle of 1980s Wianta became abstract.

Beginning with informal shapes colored by lines of dots of various hues, he 'inventoried' thousands of dot color combinations, types of small calligraphic brush strokes and geometric forms of various sizes. His work now combines elements of informal abstraction, op art and geometric abstraction, with an emphasis on large calligraphic strokes. He has gained recent fame by a huge 2000 Art and Peace "performance" on the beach of Sanur. It consisted of a 2000 m long cloth spread on the beach by 2000 dancing boys and girls. and written with the word 'peace' in all the languages of the world.

Today's collectors' favorite artist, however, is probably low profile Made Djirna (47). His exhibitions have barely been opened that most of his works are already sold. Djirna's key to success lies in an uncanny mix of technical sophistication and thematic simplicity: the skills of the painter are put at the service of a simple vision of the world in which everyone, and each collector in particular, can recognize some of his dreams -and nightmares. Djirna's favorite theme is that of Woman. But Djirna's Woman is altogether different from that of the non-Balinese painters who depict her as an exotic and sexual object, always shown barebreasted or carrying offering to a temple.
