I Nyoman Gunarsa (60), known as the “Maestro of Contemporary Balinese Art,” has been given an honorary doctorate degree from the Yogyakarta Indonesian Institute of Arts (ISI).

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, Gunarsa, a world-renowned artist in his own right and the founder of the Bali Museum of Classical Balinese Art (Museum Seni Lukis Klasik Bali), was presented with his honorary degree on Saturday, July 14, 2012, by the Rector of ISI Yogyakarta, Professor Dr. AM Hermien Kusamayati.

In presenting the honor, Gunarsa was cited for his services to contemporary painting. At the award ceremony Gunarsa delivered an address entitled” “Between Kerta Gosa and Yogyakarta: the Enlightenment of a Multi-cultural Aesthetic.

Gunarsa told his listeners that his exposure to art and artistry in Bali, such as the rich artifacts encountered at Kertagosa in Klungkung, formed the visual memories that became the “cultural capital” that allowed him to absorb the aesthetic and lessons taught during his years of study at ISI.

He credited his wide scope of painting and artistic activities available to him as a student in Yogyakarta as forming the cornerstone of his subsequent artistic development.

Gunarsa, a former instructor at ISI Yogyakarta, then thrilled the audience by demonstrating his ability to rapidly paint a portrait of a female model.
