Moved a few years ago to the north shore . Even more magical . Check it out near alas sari near Bondalem . Really a wild place to visit Plus it is more of the real Bali away from the over toursited areas.

The art by Symon is liberal and moving. After dying in a car crash he moved to the next part of his life and emerged as Symon. His book speaks his own words about his origins and his path, available at his studio. I hail the man for his integrity around his truth. My conversations with him have been inspiring,... More

Simon's art zoo is a refreshing change from the poorly executed "same same" abstracts lining the streets of Asia, and the overpriced "fine art" galleries in Ubud. His work is reasonably priced, and Symon is certainly a character that will keep you entertained during your visit. Some of his work is a little contrived, but between the screen prints of... More

We were staying at Tjampuhan and discovered this amazing art studio over the road. I was smitten with the talent of this artist....his paintings were out of this world....a must see. However, I told the man that if I had some money left over at the end of the trip I'd be back, otherwise could I have his details so... More

I believe symon is actually from America rather than Bali. The gallery is massive and quite interesting although I found no new ideas here and it seemed to be churning out lots of low quality pop art for tourists, made with little thought or creativity. Mr brainwash springs to mind although at least his "work" is better executed. How about... More

The gallery is located next to the bridge. Great place to pick up Balinese pop art. Symon is a great guy and wonderful storyteller. The gallery is HUGE and Symon is a very prolific artist - paintings are mostly on the suggestive side. You could spend hours going though the paintings. I highly recommend picking up a few Symon paintings... More

Symon's art is a feast for the soul. Don't miss stopping by his unique studio located up the hill in Campuhan. If you are lucky, he might be there (in from his N.Bali studio) and share some stories with you, or simply be painting. I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a few afternoons chatting with him and I will... More
