Symon Studios used to be called the Art Zoo and the first thing you will notice is the sign outside that says "DANGER ART!" This weird and wonderful gallery has been a Campuhan landmark for over a quarter of century. The artist Symon hails from America's Midwest, which is a bit of an oxymoron since the primary subject matter of his paintings are of beguiling young Balinese men in various stages of undress. You get the picture. His color palate is bright and bold as Symon was influenced by both Arie Smit and Andy Warhol, not necessarily in that order.
