Laguna Bali – Luxury Collection Presents Month-Long Paintings by Sasya Tranggono


(1/11/2014)

Laguna Bali - Luxury Collection presents painting by Sasya Tranggono from January 23- February 28 2014.

The Bali exhibition will display the latest work from the Indonesian painter, featuring watercolor and mixed media paintings of butterflies, flowers, and traditional Indonesian puppets.

This solo exhibition represents Sasya’s career that spans over twenty years. “Wayang” or traditional Indonesian puppets, along with flowers and butterflies were Sasya’s first works in the early stages of her career as a painter.

Having always been fascinated with “wayang” puppetry, Sasya believes these cultural icons of puppet theatre in Indonesia represents the diverse cultural life of Indonesia and perfectly portrays life on earth via the stories told by these puppets. The vibrant colors she uses to paint each puppet figure are, according to Sasya, symbols of the colors of life: laughter, sorrow, love, joy and deceit.

Similarly, the butterfly paintings in this exhibition are personal expressions that hold a dear meaning to the painter. Each butterfly expresses her story, symbolizing the metamorphosis of her life. The artist insists that each brush stroke tells a story of different periods of life’s triumphs and struggles, happiness and sadness.

Born in Jakarta on December 25th, 1963, Sasya was brought up in a Javanese family with conservative traditional values. After completing her Bachelor studies in the United States of America and her Masters degree in The Netherlands, Sasya started taking art classes and workshops in the Vrije Academie Rotterdam in The Netherlands.

What started as a mere hobby eventually became her full-time career and upon her return to Indonesia, Sasya held her first exhibition in 1999. Having spent a number of years overseas, she is determined to introduce the culture and values of her home country to the world. Sasya has since held numerous successful exhibitions in Indonesia, Malaysia, The Philippines, Singapore and The Netherlands.

Collectors of Sasya’s work include Former President of Indonesia Megawati Soekarnoputri, the founder of Air Asia Dato Tony Fernandes, former Indonesian Tourism Minister Joop Ave, and the late and former President of The Philippines Corazon Aquino.

The paintings displayed during the Bali exhibition are available for purchase with part of the proceeds going to UNICEF.

Partners for over 15 years, Starwood Hotels & Resorts and UNICEF have raised more than US$ 25 million and transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of children worldwide.
