The Balinese Art of Ogoh-Ogoh – Latest Book Launched by the Bali Purnati Center for the Arts.


Chris Ball, Leonard Lueras and The Bali Purnati Center For The Arts (Yayasan Bali Purnati) are launching The Balinese Art Of Ogoh-Ogoh, a large-format book which documenting one of Bali’s most unique art forms - the Ogoh Ogoh.

The papier mâché statues or ogoh-ogoh - depicting demons and other characters, form part of the traditional observance of Nyepi – the Balinese day of absolute silence that ushers in a new year on the Bali-Hindu calendar. Hoisted onto the shoulders of village men and boys, the elaborately made statues are crafted in the weeks leading up to the annual celebration in the community halls (banjars) of local villages.

Two years in preparation, The Balinese Art of Ogoh-Ogoh features a foreword by the Dr. Bulantrisna Djelantik, an Introduction by New Zealand ethnomusicologist Vaughan Hatch, and photographs by 33 leading Balinese and foreign photographers.

The book was edited and designed by the author-photographer-publisher Leonard Lueras and produced by longtime Bali resident Chris Ball.

The premiere edition of this book is presented in a formal poleng cloth slipcase with the titles on its jacket and hard cover gold-foil-stamped,.
The book’s 208 pages were designed in a portrait format printed in five colors with many images enhanced by spot varnish on 190 gram art paper.
