Balinese Art Gallery
Web Site:

The Balinese have great respect for the mystics and artists living in their midst, with ancient Hindu beliefs and esthetic lifestyles amazingly able to remain culturally intact despite millions of foreign visitors & modern influences.

“Seni” means creative art and even though artisans may not be wealthy, the Balinese also tolerate their artist’s eccentricities, giving them deference and freedom to create. Vincent Van Gough may have found a more congenial workplace in Bali.
