Ubud Off The Beaten Path: 15 reviews and 24 photos
We were definately lucky - we met Mr Ngurah KK, a renowed artist, not only in Bali but also a painter for Unicef. Mr Ngurah KK is in his 50s and looking every bit of an artist - he has a pony tail. We were walking along Campuhan when Harry spotted an artist painting beautiful art pieces at the verandah of a gallery. We stopped to look and Mr Ngurah KK stopped painting and looked up at us. We must have been scrutinizing so fiercely into his painting because his painting is so detailed and fine - was he annoyed by us ? Harry asked a couple of questions and Mr Ngurah KK got up and invited us into his gallery. Mr Ngurah KK was kind enough to share with us his life history and some beautiful exhibits that he has done in other countries. He also showed us some of his photograhs when he was younger - yeap, he has his pony tail since then but he also kept a moustache (he was much thinner then). Mr Ngurah's wife is also an artist, so is his son. We stood at his gallery hall and admired his "young artists" pieces - very detailed, fine, colourful (lots of red, orange, yellow & green) & vibrant. Most of his paintings tell stories of Bali and the daily lives of Balinese. Eventhough we didn't buy any of the art pieces (which we love to if we have the money), Mr Ngurah KK, being a true artist, shared with us his love for art so generously.
Mr Ngurah KK's art pieces are also being displayed in the Neka Museum and in Agung Rai Museum. Upon our return from Neka Museum which is about 20minutes away from Mr Ngurah KK's gallery, we stopped by at his gallery again. We had a cool evening drink of beer together.
