About my arts

The idea my art works are from subculture theme in wide point of view, I interested in non mainstreams way of thinking specially on my social and culture background as a Balinese and from that wide frame of idea I made it as an art works like paintings, installations, performance art, object art and underground music.

Lines are very basic in Balinese hinduism culture, we belive “lines of life” our current existance are strong related from our past, rajah built up from lines, rajah is a ancient native Balinese form of art, i just realise that i got my “bloodlines of art” from my mother family lines, my greatgrand father is a lontar making (Balinese manuscript) so do my grand father until now, he  is a old man that learn and practicing a ancient Balinese customs, like reading and writing Lontar, making rajah and mantra and in the same way he is a farmer too.

I believe in this world there’s no deathline accept death it self, if we try the best we can in this sort life times with “weapons” that we have. I use arts as  my “weapons” it mean if I am a visual artist, I will use my talent that I have to share with other as much as I can. If we are musicians, use music to change peoples point of view, to start make a little change. If we are a journalist, write the truth, express the real fact and criticism all problems. For peoples with their “weapons” we can make a change for better future for us and for our next generation.

as a part of the visual art scene here in Bali and Indonesia in common, I already have a  long list of activity and lot of idea and project waiting to realize in the future.

as a member of the local underground band Geekssmile I express my self in a different way of arts,  for me, as long as  it purpose and content of my arts are  visualize I will do any kind of possibility of art.
