My name is I Wayan Wartayasa and I was born in 1971 in Sulangai Village in Badung, Bali. While my parents were not artists, I have loved to paint since I was a child and often watched shadow puppet shows (wayang kulit) which became a huge source of inspiration. Beside my main job as an artist, I started to become a puppet master (dalang) in 2011. In my original paintings, I am often inspired by Mahabaratha and Ramayana epics as well as Balinese daily life. If you're interested in learning about traditional Balinese arts, I'd love to have you join one of my classes!
