Anak Agung Gde Anom Sukawati (b. 1966)


A.A. Anom Sukawati

Anak Agung Anom is the third son of the noted Balinese painter, Anak Agung Gde Raka Pudja, and the grandson of the welknown Pitamaha artist, Anak Agung Gde Meregeg. He first learnt to paint from his father. His favorite subject matters are Balinese dances that he adored from watching them in the temples. Over the years, his works have matured with a more complex composition as shown in his latest work: Melasti ceremony (2008). He has mastered the color composition rivaling his grandfather. There is a touch of I Nyoman Meja style, especialy in his depiction of the eyes of his dancers and children.
