In a collaboration with Nyaman Gallery, Alila Seminyak presents a weekly series of Warna Senja: Live! Painting evenings at The Restaurant, inspired by an appreciation of fine food and fine art.
The event brings together an eclectic mix of Indonesian and Bali-based artists represented by Nyaman Gallery in Seminyak. Each week, a different artist will complete an original work of art over Thursday and Friday evening, which will then be displayed in the resort lobby. Taking place in the restaurant, diners will be able to watch the canvas come alive in a variety of styles and mediums, from tribal and spiritual influences to surrealism, street style and more, providing an exciting visual accompaniment to their meal.
The Warna Senja: Live! Painting series will culminate on Friday, 28 October 2016 with an Artisanal Night, featuring a cocktail party at the Beach Terrace, where invited guests will be able to witness the very last piece of art being completed, followed by a live auction of all the artworks created throughout the series.
The diverse line-up of featured artists includes:
YOKII : 30 Sept – 1 Oct
YOKII is known for his aggressive experimentation with a wide variety of materials – from fabrics to recycled plywood – used to create garments, prints and other art forms. He takes on the most challenging of mediums through his mastery of varied techniques for applying paint or print to sundry surfaces. Together with his partner and fellow artist Bunny Bone, YOKII recently created a striking 9-metre wall piece for a VIP lounge at the Domestic Departure Terminal at Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali.
Lukman Fauzi : 6 – 7 Oct Hailing from Probolinggo, East Java, Fauzi’s paintings take us deep into a fantasy world of his own creation, forming surreal shapes and stories depicted through everyday objects such as glass bottles, candles and eggs. Fine lines and a palette of blacks, whites and greys create a sensation that is strange yet calming.
Bunny Bone : 13 – 14 Oct A young, self-taught artist, Bunny Bone has rapidly blossomed and gained widespread attention in the last three years. Her artwork captures both the soft and wild as well as the fragile and elusively exotic sides of femininity. Inspired by collaborations with her partner YOKII, Bunny Bone has begun exploring drawing on a much larger scale.
Shaolen : 20 – 21 Oct Shaolen is of French Indonesian origin. During a time of reconnecting with her ancestry, her artwork took on a tribal and spiritual form inspired by dreams and visions of tribes and spirit warriors. Shaolen has worked with artists and musicians from all over the world, her journey slowly leading her back to a point fixed in time connected to the very depths of her past but cemented heavily in the now.
Quint : 27 – 28 Oct Quint’s street art has fascinated passers-by along the back alleys of Kuta, the bustling streets of Seminyak and the far corners of Canggu and Ubud. His signature maidens on canvas each carry a message of love and feature monochromatic, feminine figures flashing witty gestures.
