Born in North Bali in 1976, Nyoman Wirdana's early art training included two years of study with Retno Tri Joko in West Java. Returning home to Bali in 1998, he continued his studies with the famous artists Sugito, continuing an artistic legacy of one of Indonesia's most famous artists – Dullah, who mentored both Retno Tri Joko and Sugito.
In Bali, Nyoman has found a creative home at Pranoto Gallery where he creates paintings of landscapes, portraits, still lifes and the human form during the twice-weekly life drawing sessions held there.
The current exhibition focuses on flowers rendered in oil on canvas, allowing him full expressions of textured techniques, in combination with strong composition and color harmony.Kerry Pendergrast
