Micro Galleries

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….

Food & art at Vienna café

Every Sunday I follow a life model drawing workshop in Seminyak. The location for the workshop is on the second floor of Vienna Café in Seminyak.

I’m happy that I can follow a life model drawing workshop in Seminyak because it is very hard to find.  For creative workshops Ubud is the place to be. Unfortunately Ubud is a bit too far for me. So.. many thanks for Melanie the teacher and Vienna Café for the location…

As you can see I still have a lot to learn. But.. it’s a lot of fun to be creative!

Vienna Café a cute little bakery in a quiet corner of Seminyak on Jalan Drupadi (just off the eastern end of Laksmana), Vienna Café and Bakery has a brilliant atmosphere.

It’s sedate and relaxed and you’ll find people here reading a book or surfing silently on the free WiFi — it’s bliss. The café serves a range of baked goods, café favourites and Austrian specials.

Set a short walk from the main drag through Seminyak, give Vienna Cafe a go when you’re fed up of the noise on Jalan Kayu Aya.
