This is one of the few galleries in Bali that has ample space to show off large-scale contemporary works. The prerequisite for any foreign artist displayed here is kontemporer, a strong connection to the island. One of the top-selling artists here is the masterfully superior I Made Djirna who has achieved international recognition. Keen on painting women as archetypes and mothers, Djirna's women are altogether different from that of non-Balinese artists like Le Mayeur who depicted women as exotic and sexy.
