Into the soul of I Made Djirna

Art In Bali | Written By, NOW! BALI |

As you pass the Balinese gate and into the studio, it is like treading on the soul of a sensitive, creative painter who uses the brush and canvas to portray his tempestuous emotions. Born in Kedewatan, Ubud, I Made Djirna graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design at the Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta (Indonesia Institute of the Arts Yogyakarta) in 1985. He now lives and works in his home village, but is still very active in holding and joining exhibitions, both solo and group, in many Indonesian cities as well as overseas. A lot of his works have been auctioned at Christie’s New York.

As you pass the Balinese gate and into the studio, it is like treading on the soul of a sensitive, creative painter who uses the brush and canvas to portray his tempestuous emotions.

Born in Kedewatan, Ubud, I Made Djirna graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design at the Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta (Indonesia Institute of the Arts Yogyakarta) in 1985. He now lives and works in his home village, but is still very active in holding and joining exhibitions, both solo and group, in many Indonesian cities as well as overseas. A lot of his works have been auctioned at Christie’s New York.

In the book “Selected Works of Made Djirna”, one can learn that the prominent Balinese artist is very experimental with his works, applying diverse materials, techniques and styles. If you have a look at Djirna’s versatile works that are scattered around his Kedewatan studio, you can see how his artistic motivations are very much influenced by his emotions.

Opening the doors of his studio, Djirna will take questions and talk about his work – he may also give demonstrations to offer you a more in-depth observation on the elements, media, and methods he uses in the creative process and thought. You can observe how passionately he transforms lines, colors, texture and figures into all kinds of graphic compositions.!
