A Painter From London In Bali
Last week GNFI posted an article about a former football player from Australia who’s having a traditional therapy to cure his cancer in Bali. This week, another good news came from Bali. This “Pulau Dewata” (island of gods) surely attracts a lot of foreigners. Once they visit Bali, they would be craving for going back.
This also happen to Neal Adams. Adams, a painter from London, first visited Ubud in 1998. He sensed something unique about the town, and finally taking up permanent residence there in 2003.
Adams has found a spiritual place which full of inspiration in his home, surrounded by green rice fields and fog-shrouded mountains of Ubud. He said, “I adored sitting in gardens but preferred to be within the depths of a forest with a pencil and sketch pad, to be in its silence, surrounded by its energy, I had a sense of calm.”
His works are regularly traded at Masterpiece Auction House in Jakarta and each October, he exhibits his paintings in sold-out shows at the JL Gallery Modern Art & Design in California. In Ubud, his works can be viewed at Orgone Gallery on Jalan Raya, Sanggingan, just up the road from Mozaic Restaurant.
