Berdendang by contemporary artist Nyoman Handi, Sawidji Gallery. Original artwork, mixed media on paper.
‘Berdendang’ means singing or to sing. At a quick glimpse, the visual of this mixed media sketch is simple. Angelic, wings. When you look just a little closer, quickly it becomes emotion. Joy, song, dance! You see figures dancing joyfully on the wings of a deity/god.
Nyoman Handi at Sawidji Gallery and Artist Collective. An emerging artist in reflecting the fusions and contrasts that is contemporary art Bali today. More about the artist Nyoman Handi.
Nyoman Handi Yasa is a contemporary Balinese artist whose art explores environmental and social themes on canvas and mixed media platforms. His influences are derived strongly from primitive art as well as contemporary narrative styles. The result is a gorgeous fusion of new-generation social consciousness spoken through a visual language that echoes our ancient beginnings.
The most important thing about art is that we can communicate a message from our work and our work can be recognised that it is the artist’s work. That people can understand and receive the message in the community
Handis’ art is part of Sawidji Collaborative Exhibition ‘Kala and the Guardians’ December 2022 – January 2023 at Sawidji Gallery. Contemporary Art Bali.
