    The Neka Art Museum has a Balinese and foreign art collection inspired by the natural beauty, life and culture of Bali divided amongst several Balinese style buildings. Dutch painter, with Indonesian roots, Arie Smit has his own pavilion for his colourfull painting. Nice museum not far from the centre of Ubud.

    We usually take years to find paintings that we both like and suit what we are looking for. However here we were spoilt for choice. There was such a range of styles to choose from and so many galleries, that we found many that we both liked. So, rather than having difficulty choosing a painting, our decision was solely determined by the size of the painting. Thoroughly recommended.

    Worth the price - see the maestro's collection. No camera's are allowed one you enter the museum. Worth to visit for about an hour.

    Museum Puri Lukisan is a tranquil place of serenity and home to some great artworks. You can go around the museum and enjoy the majestic Balinese architecture with its cultivated garden, beautiful ponds and big halls filled with Hindu's sacred artworks. It is one of the oldest art museums in Bali, founded and build by Tjokorda Gde Agung Sukawati (the king of Ubud), his brother, Walter Spies and Rudolf Bonnet. The story of Ramayana and Mahabharata are the main subject for most of the paintings and sculptures. The battle of good versus evil, the romance between the mortals and immortal are all depicted in various techniques by different artists. There are also artworks by Walter Spies of Balinese landscape. All are available for intercultural contemplation for both the physical and spiritual.

    Hopefully a rebuild. Once a bustling favourite among tourists, the Bintang Supermarket (Bintang means Star) burnt down in the early hours of the morning on Thursday 16th January 2020. There is talk that it will be rebuilt, but that will be some time away. I purchased some chocolate and a couple of music instruments, then later that night a very hot fire ripped through the place. Quite a number of people filmed the event.

    First thing I notice is how big the museum building from outside. And that makes me amaze even more is how bigger it actually is! You’ll see full of details dragon statue on the stairs to main entrance, then you’ll find ticket counter, then the magic begins. The museum has huge variation of arts on display. It has 3 storeys on the main building, and few other smaller bungalows around it. Yes, they’re all full of paintings and arts. It’s really nice to wonder around as I found a lot of interesting paintings. You can take photos at most of the museum’s part.

    I had the amazing opportunity of experiencing one of Alex's online/offline teacher training courses.

    What a profound and beautiful experience it was 🙏🏻🙌🏻. Alex has this belief where he only teaches what he has experienced himself, and passes that on to his students, so through out this course you are experiencing everything you need to know, hands on, in order to hold space and facilitate breathwork, icebathes and authentic relating.
    So as much as I was learning to facilitate these wonderful modalities, I was also learning how to deal with and release all the trauma and baggage I had accumulated since I was a young child. This course equipped me with tools I have been searching for my whole life. So you not only learning o teach , you are experiencing it first hand, going through the motions, releasing, integrating, rewiring your own mind body and soul.

    So by the time I had finished the course, having experienced my own healing process, I had the confidence, wisdom and knowledge I needed to go out into the world and do what I was called to do in this life, and I'm doing it 🙏🏻☀️. I currently teach and facilitate breathwork, icebathes and many other modalities to people needing to find that inner peace, contentment, joy and bliss we all need in our lives. And we are finding it every day 🙂🦋🙏🏻.

    Thank you Alex, peace and love to you brother 🙏🏻☀️

    Well worth the visit. A beautiful museum dedicated to the wood carving master works of Tilem and his father Njana. The museum is in the heart of Mas, a village dedicated to wood carving and presents selected pieces of its two great historical master carvers Ida Bagus Njana and Ida Bagus Tilem. There is also Balinese antiques, paintings and masks on display.

    Njana and Tilem, changed the face of Balinese carving. Njana took simple carving lines to a new level and Tilem introduced works using naturally distorted driftwood to express emotion and abstract thought form.

    The museum itself has an architectural style reminiscent of the bygone era of Majapahit kingdom.

    The second section of the museum is a private collection of the family. A small museum shop is downstairs and if you have time, stay and have lunch. The cafe looks closed, but it is not closed. This museum has not had its official Grand Opening, just a soft opening at this stage. The grounds are huge and there is plenty to do here - so plan a 2 hour stay or more.

    Wanted to find some true local artwork and we did. The students and teachers here are so skilled and the work is so detailed. Unfortunately we went in the morning so didn't get to meet the students as they come at 2pm after normal school. But once Wayan found out we hadn't seen a traditional Balinese house before he was more than happy to explain all the different buildings and show us his pigs. The detail that some of these young students have for their work is mind blowing. The art here is much more expensive than at the tourist markets, around $60 for a small piece, but after you see the detail and how many days they spend on each piece it is definitely worth the extra. The money goes to the artists and a small 10% goes to the school for supplies. My kids loved that the paintings were done by someone there age. This place is a must and you get to help keep the traditions alive.

    We were glad to be able to experience wayang kulit. It was very much shortened for tourists, and included English parts, which makes it less authentic but may be helpful for some viewers. You also get a written synopsis beforehand. Being allowed to look behind the scenes gave us an insight the amazing details and skills involved.

    As there were a group of tourists in the audience who clearly had no appreciation of a foreign culture (talking through the opening music, giggling as the puppets appeared, commenting on sounds and eventually leaving noisily one by one) and this echoed the mindset in one of the bad reviews, we would like to recommend this show to visitors who are actually interested in experiencing the tradition with an open mind. And if you then find it’s not for you, we would hope you’d still show respect.

    Located just adjacent to our Ubud Palace Hotel. Has a nice collection of outfits though choices are a bit limited. Bought one for my daughter. Also got a discount by posting and tagging them on FB!

    FREE ENTRY.
    We were in the area visiting Tegenungan Waterfalls and Kemenuh Butterfly Park.
    But we did drop in on a bad day as most of the art was boxed up ready for a overseas show.
    This meant the kilns were not in use either.
    The owner was very nice to talk to and was very apologetic nothing was happening.
    We did have a look around and we may try again next time.
