When art becomes a medium to express the mind as well as restate realities, even the most restless of concerns can appear beautiful on canvas. Gusti Buda is a highly committed abstract painter who communicates the stark reality of urban environment on his insightful abstract paintings. Using mixed media, he composes elements of architectural forms in gallant colors. For six years Buda has consistently worked with the theme related to the rapid urban development of Bali.

Realizing the limitations of canvas, Buda has created a way to capture messy city architecture in his paintings. Barrenness caused by the prevailing concrete buildings is manifested on bold square and rectangular forms using dominant colors of red, yellow ochre and black. In some of his works, unruly arrangement are reflected as black doors and gray windows on a white landscape emanating daylight coolness.

Gusti Buda studied art in the Denpasar School of Fine Art. Born and raised in Sangeh, outside of Denpasar – an area set in shrinking forests and vanishing rice fields of southern Bali. Forced to accept the harsh reality of urban development, Budi allows his concern and his critical views towards Bali's spreading urbanization become an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Through his paintings, Buda wishes to tell viewers about the increasingly sad condition of Bali's natural environment. Buda has been spreading his message and actively participating in international exhibitions since 1995 in Singapore, Hong Kong, the USA, and the UK. In 2004 he ranked as a top finalist in the Sovereign Art Award, Hong Kong.

In his exhibition at Jenggala Art Gallery, Gusti Buda presents "Overload," his latest solo exhibition. The theme embraced by his title reflects Buda's vision of disorderly buildings plundering the green nature. According to Buda, Bali builds so many hotels and villas replacing green rice fields and forests so fast that it is fast losing its natural charm. He believes that the development in Bali should have to heed to the Balinese concept of Tri Hita Karana promoting balance in the relationship between man and man, man and God, and man and nature.

Overload

"Overload" an exhibition of paintings by Gusti Buda at the Jenggala Art Gallery open daily from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. March 16, 2006 through June 8, 2006.
