Aan Arif: Sport #4, Oil on Canvas, 130 x 180 cm. Known for his brushstrokes that embody movement and transience, the artist paints a ski athlete in the midst of a dynamic turn, capturing the grace of the subject's body and the delicacy of snow spray in the same frame. In this image, the artist depicts not only the excitement and speed required by the sport, but also the art of representation - creating immaculate portraiture with fluid strokes.
Tjokorda Bagus Wiratmaja: The Dancing, Acrylic on Canvas, 80 x 120 cm. Tjokorda knows exactly how to simplify his figures up to the point where they best represent the idea, the concept and the feeling. Even within the textures, the figures are seldom enriched with extensive layers of bold colors, fierce brushstrokes and energetic lines which depict the amount of passion and vivacity that lies in their body.
Tjokorda Bagus Wiratmaja: Pursuing Fortune, Acrylic on Canvas, 120 x 150 cm. Powerful figure of bulls rushing into one direction demonstrating the extent of desire and passion within their textures and their expressive motions. Tjokorda unifies them with his fierce decisive brushstrokes and enriches them with deep bold colors and protects them with massively layered Background.
