UNLOCK ART WITH PONCO SETYOHADI
With art as our brand’s passion points we are delighted to partner with local art enthusiast – Ponco Setyohadi for a 3 week art exhibition laid out around the resort’s Hub from 4 to 26 December 2014.
An aclaimed artist here in Bali, Ponco discovered his artistic passion at an early age, growing up in his hometown in Malang. Experimenting with drawings, sketches and painting using various mediums he further nurtured his talent by pursuing a formal education in the arts at the IKIP Malang University.
His upcoming solo exhibition at our resort is an interesting project as it opens a window to Ponco’s world of integrative art. Showcasing a collection of themes, Ponco is once again set to change the concept of traditional art with a contemporary twist. To be featured at Le Méridien Bali Jimbaran are his artworks portraying his transformation over the years hence the theme – ‘My Transformation’ featuring:
Poleng - a Balinese aspect of balance and harmony, chiefly depicted through the checkered fabric of black and white, it showcases Ponco’s collection of paintings that hold sway from the deep philosophical and religious interpretations of Balinese culture.
Kepeng – This art is inspired by a Chinese style coin that was introduced in the 882 AD as a currency. Also known locally as Uang Kepeng, Pipis Bolong and Jinah Bolong, to date it is still used in the Balinese Hindy-ceremony as part of the offerings.
Realism – The Realism (or naturalism ) collection by Ponco is attempted to represent subject matter truthfully without artificiality and avoiding artistic conventions, implausible and supernatural elements. His last realism paintings represent the portraits of Beauty Balinese nature, culture and religion.
