Bali's Maya Ubud Resort & Spa will feature a solo painting exhibition by Suminarto, "Faces of Bali" from July 15 – August 31, 2008.

Known as a talented painter in the impressionist and realist style, Suminarto has been strongly influenced by the realist work of Dullah, one of the Indonesian master painters and a favorite of Indonesia's first President, Sukarno. Suminarto's work was also influenced by S. Sudjojono, a man who served as the artist's tutor in impressionism.

Born in Solo, Central Java, in 1941, Suminarto studied at the Institute of Art in his home town. First coming to Bali in 1963 seeking inspiration he, like so many artists before him, instantly fell in love with the many charms of the Island. A few years later in 1969 he relocated to Bali and has remained here ever since.

Suminarto will display forty of his works at the Maya Ubud Resort & Spa focusing on Balinese faces and panoramic views of his adopted home in the current exhibition.

Finding inspiration in the unique character and beauty of the faces of the Balinese people, Suminarto confesses a long-held fascination with the facial expressions of the Balinese, their body lines, eyes and subtle movements. The artist believes these physical attributes are a reflection of the religious and cultural activities of the people.

Faces of Bali

Suminarto's beautiful works on canvas, acrylic and pastel that comprise his current exhibition can be viewed at the Maya Ubud Resort & Spa daily from July 15 to August 31, 2008.
