WALTER SPIES THE ARTIST WHO FOUND BALI


If you want to see Bali painting, you must see the original and the biggest artist who had influenced in Bali. Before he came to Bali, almost every Bali artist only made paintings about their myths and wayangs (the story about Mahabarata and Ramayana). But after he came everything changes, the Bali artist paints everything and anything. Markets, rivers, villages, birds, puras, even the peoples.
The artist is Walter Spies. He had a lot of masterpieces. The Kecak dance had influenced from him too. This Germany artist come to Java in 1923, then stay in Bali, love Bali and everything about Bali.

Born in 15th September 1895 in Mokswa , Russia. He learns paintings from Russian Artist like Gorky and Rachmaninov who came to his house. Every artwork from him is so mystery. The cloud and the farmer are always with cow or buffalo. Not always, but almost every painting from he is work. The body of farmer is so genuine. Thin and smooth. That stiles is becomes his trade mark.
In 1940 Walter Spies is prisoner by Nederland in Java. And in 18th January 1942 he died in the Indian ocean, around Sumatra Island on the trip to Srilangka. The ship bombed by Japan.
