Bali, March 2017 –
Bayak, born 1980 in Tampaksiring, Gianyar showed promising artistic and musical talent from an early age and went on to study at the Indonesian Art Institute (ISI) Denpasar, 1999-2006. It was here that he met his wife, Komang Kartika Dewi who also is a graduate from ISI and teaches art at Sukawati Junior High School. They have one son, Damar Langit Timur, another gifted artist
who began creating figurative representations on his own from as early as two years of age.
Combinations of Bayak’s family’s creative energies were showcased in an exhibition last year, titled “Arm our Family”. In this exhibition he and his wife emphasized the importance of parents and adults being positive role models to children and to impart them with tools of knowledge and holistic education to inspire their budding creativity and imagination.
The artist exhibits his works regularly in Bali and recently exhibited in Germany and Poland. To his credit he has been nominated as a finalist in Singapore’s prestigious 2013 Sovereign Art Prize.
“Via my art I can connect with people from different backgrounds and express to them what I believe is essential”. Let us all be a part of this phenomenon of social change that is occurring. If you are a writer do with it with the power of your words, if you are a musician do it with your songs and your music, “said Made Bayak.
The subjects in Bayak’s simplified stencilled images are cultural icons, Balinese girls in traditional costumes, dancers from Balinese Hindu ceremonies and decorative cultural motifs. The backgrounds of his works manifest into unusual abstract milieus that include bright colours, packaging textures logos and advertising. The stencilled black images on the foreground create powerful aesthetic contrasts.
“The exhibition introduces us into the very heart of Balinese culture and the education for children. I hope in some small or large way, this activity makes a positive differences and inspired parents” said Jamal Hussain, General Manager of Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa.
