While I was in Bali I stumbled across a wonderful exhibition in the hotel next to the one where I was staying. Giant canvases painted with oil and pencil or acrylic and pencil brought to life Balinese faces in the most extraordinary way.
Seeing these faces was incredible. Living in Australia, I am so used to seeing European faces portrayed. It was a delight to see these gorgeous brown faces in all their wrinkles and beauty adorning the gallery walls.
The detail was amazing - it was like looking at a photograph or a living face, close up. The artist, I Dewa Gede Rata Yoga is a phenomenal talent.
