The Local Basquiat of Ubud
We were thrilled to find two young modern artists plying their wares in downtown Ubud. With a wry sense of humor, and a style not unlike Basquiat, this is art you can actually afford, and something no one is going to expect you to bring home from the Island of the Gods. I still wish I'd bought the artfully rendered "Chicken Satay" -- a vertical piece that looked for all the world like the rubber chickens people used to fly from their Cougar's antennas back in the 60's. Don't worry about getting it home, everything pops off the stretchers.
