【 What is Balinese Art ? 】
It was said that the origin of the Balinese art comes from the Majapahit Empire in the late 16th century. Balinese art wass influenced by Hindu culture, many of the paintings depicted the god and goddess of the Hinduism as well as the ancient Indian epic, such as Ramayana and so on. During the colonization of the Netherlands, Balinese art was also influenced by the western art. Some techniques such as perspective and shading could be observed in contemporary Balinese art. The Balinese artists also started to draw about the daily lives of the people and scenery of Bali.
