Dewi Dian Reich Portfolio
Dewi Dian Reich has exhibited with the Australian Centre of Photography, National Art School and AAAA Gallery, with her photography. From mid 2008 she is actively working in Digital Development, CRM and Business Solutions, including Lean Methodology and practice. Her return to her artistic beginnings is a source of joy and is grateful that her other work experience can serve in some way to bring about the formation of Sawidji Artist Collective and its initiatives.
Dewi Dian Reich Upcoming Projects
Dewi Dian is focused on the ongoing development of Sawidji Artist Collective and Gallery. The economic changes brought about by the Covid Pandemic to Bali was a catalyst. There was already a need to reassess the conditions affecting the integrity of Balinese Traditional Arts. Which is never separate from the intricacies of the culture itself. Whilst Sawidji explores these themes we simply wish to celebrate the talents, community and the Nature that we are blessed with.
Sawidji Art Gallery and Sawidji Studio Fine Art Photography
In 2022 Dewi Dian Reich with Sawidji and Manbutur Suantara have begun a wonderful new initiative. Sawidji Fine Art Photography Studio. This is truly an exciting time. Looking forward to the developments of our upcoming programs and joint works in Sawidji Studio.
