About the artist
Jogjakarta-based Balinese artist Wayan Novi has developed a distinctive
personal vision of the importance of everyday objects and their beauty in the
simple village life he grew up in. Novi’s paintings depict vivid memories of
himself – growing up in the mountainous Angseri village in Bali with its
pivotally cold weather, and the kitchen. The best place for his family
members and friends to hang out was always near the warmth of the
fireplace; in the kitchen. His intricate pictures reveal the details his eye
captures in and around this living space, and through this visual depiction,
narrates a series of stories around family, bonds and relationships.

Novi’s dedicated mark-making on a canvas forms an impressionable yet
neutral landscape for everyday objects to find their place. Having lived
amongst farmers since young, his pointillism embodies the philosophy of
agriculture and its spirit of hard work. Determination eventually rewards
success and invaluable growth. Every mark inscribed is as if a seed is being
planted, and with persistence, a beautiful harvest awaits the artist and the
viewer – the finished work of Novi.
