Born in 1980 and raised in the very religious and artistic village of Tampaksiring, Central Bali, Nyoman Suarnata has shown a natural talent for painting and drawing since an early age. Nyoman completed a five-year education in ISI (Institut Seni Indonesia/Indonesian Art Institute) Denpasar in 2006 and has been solely painting ever since.
With unique and ever-changing style, Nyoman follows his intuition instinctively, and tirelessly explores various painting and drawing techniques, making his creations diverse in mood and look. Nyaman Gallery is delighted to be showcasing his beautiful and melancholy collection of naïve-style vintage Vespas and bicycles mixed-media paintings. The pieces represent childhood adventure and the romance of old times, bringing back the innocence and memories of the past, and reminding us of the places where we came from.
Nyoman Suarnata had joined numerous collective exhibitions in Bali and held a couple of solo exhibitions in 2011 and 2014. He was also listed as one of the semi-finalists of the Gudang-Garam Indonesia Art Award 2015.
