Ubud Shopping: 33 reviews and 56 photos
I really like the art collection in Tegal Sari, so I put on a quest for its similar paintings but on affordable price..The galleries along Monkey Forest Road are a bit too pricey for my budget, luckily I was able to pass by the Monkey Forest Art Market... Rows of shops selling paintings / replicas of local Ubud artists...
I have check almost all shops there, and was able to find Kerta Asih Shop, Wayan Asih, ( the wife) was very nice and their shop got lots of variety on ubud arts, the price is also the most competitive.
What to buy: Traditional Ubud paintings, your choice if with frame or just rolled canvas..The frames with Balinese woodcarvings is a nice touch and also very cheap.
The photos below shows different art style of Balinese artists, I really like the Balinese dancer painting, the stroke used by the artist is really different, kind of ringlets ..just like the paintings I adore in Tegal Sari...
I'm not exactly an art collector, but in Bali, i bought a lot. Very nice souvenir and really good prices.
What to pay: Your 100 usd will go a long long way, lots of paintings already. Bargain bargain!
Address: Monkey Forest Art Market, Money Forest Road Ubud
Directions: Look for Wayan Asih in the Monkey Forest Art Market, its at the far end of the art market.
