Nyoman Sujana

Nyoman Sujana, also well know as “Kenyem”, was born on September 9, 1972 in Sayan, Ubud-Gianyar, Bali. He is one of few native painters of Ubud area who was able to break away from the shackles of local painting tradition. Kenyem was first trained as an artist at the Young Artist Community in nearby Panestanan area, where he learnt about repetitive pattern. In 1992, Kenyem shifted to abstract when he continued his studies at the Indonesia art Institute ( STSI ) in Denpasar. After graduating from STSI in 1998, Kenyem’s work developed into many series that related to nature, animal, and humans. All his artworks convey the same massage; a better life achieved through harmonious living between human and nature.
