I went with my friends to Denpasar for Micro Galleries on Saturday 3rd of October.
Micro galleries reclaims disused and forgotten spaces and reactivates them as tiny galleries that are free and accessible to the local community. Bringing together International and local artists, it features work that challenges ingrained ideas, blurs the line between street art and fine art and aims to help change the way we see the world, our environment and our community – even for a micro moment.

The art scene took place around the Badung tradional market. Our plan was having an art tour so we couldn’t miss any artwork. Unfortunately we missed the tour, so we walked by our self to find the art work. And we have seen fantastic art work. Great wall paintings, installations in the Badung river and in Jl. Ternate Gang III, a very small street, full of art on the walls. Paintings, photos. illustrations etc. very cool…. Also I had the opportunity in Jl. Ternate Gang III to do a workshop, pinhole photography. Amazing what you can do with a simple can, photo paper, a little chemical and sunlight, you can shoot a photo……. The boys from Semut ireng Photography who gave the workshop did a great job, so helpful. It was a lot of fun…
Despite that we not have seen all the art work, we had a great day. If Micro Galleries comes again to Bali, I definitely go again and don’t want to miss any art work….
