Every year, Komaneka Fine Art Gallery in Ubud holds an exhibition of the work of top local artists. This year Komaneka Fine Art Gallery will hold two exhibitions with theme 'Coming Home' -- the first of a series of exhibitions of the same name presenting the work of artists who were exhibited at Komaneka Art Gallery when they were up-and-coming artists.
Komaneka was a sort of birthplace for these emerging artists. Afterwards they were free to develop themselves and venture out into the world, becoming successful artists in their own right.
This exhibition celebrates the recent work of two Balinese artists -- I Wayan Sujana (Suklu) and I Nyoman Sujana (Kenyem) -- who came into the fold of Komaneka Gallery in the 1990s when they were young men and who have since matured to international recognition. In this sense, the exhibition is a kind of homecoming, a symbolic journey back to their roots, back to the place where they were born as artists -- bringing their new art to a place they called home.
The exhibition of Kenyem runs from 6 August to 6 September; Suklu from 9 September to 9 October 2016.
