Dewi Dian Reich

“There is a magical quality in the energy one finds amongst each other, when a group comes together with a shared purpose. Relationships built on this foundation of helping and supporting each other to grow is the foundation on which our community is formed.” Dewi Dian Reich


Dewi Dian Reich was born in Sydney Australia. She was raised until the age of 8 with her Grandmother and aunts in Indonesia, and then continued her secondary and tertiary education in Australia. Dewi has a deep love for art, history and the traditions in her Indonesian heritage. She has called Bali her home for nearly 20 years.


Dewi Dian is a graduate of the Australian National Art School in Bachelor of Fine Arts. Majoring in Photography. She studied extensively in painting and photography disciplines with emphasis on art history and theory. She was a student at the Julian Ashton Art School from 1992. Undertook post graduate studies in Digital Media, Linguistics and Asian Studies.


She has exhibited with the Australian Centre of Photography, National Art School and AAAA Gallery, with her photography. From mid 2008 her work has been centred on 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.

Upcoming Projects

Dewi 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. Sawidji may explore these themes. However, it simply wishes to celebrate the talents, the community and the Nature that we are fortunate to be a part of.

ManButur Sawidji Art

In 2022 Manbutur Suantara and Sawidji have come together in a partnership in our Fine Art Photography Studio. This is truly an exciting time. Looking forward to the developments of our upcoming programs and joint works in ManButur Sawidji.
