Residence with East Editions

Artworks series done during my residence with East Editions in Bali where i worked with them in this limited series of abstract paintings inspired on my days in the island.

When I landed in Bali, I spent the first few days exploring the island, nature places, visiting temples, spending time with local people, learning a little bit about the balinese culture and fascinated with the colors of the island and the rituals.

Then after feeling super inspired from my experiences and surroundings,  East Editions team introduced me to an amazing local framer named Nyoman in Kerobokan, where i designed some unique geometric shaped mounted plywood panels, then I spent three days in East Editions studio in Canggu, painting the panels, using a combination of acrylic paints and collaged rattan, a local resource in Bali that has many practical applications.

My time in the studio resulted in three unique abstract colorful paintings.

Titled “Balidiversity”, these pieces were inspired by the Balinese landscape, people, customs and cultures, as well as the lush tropical surroundings, native plants and coastal location. These artworks are a true reflection of my time in Bali and an extension on my ongoing abstract body of artwork.
