Pande Ketut Taman was born in Peliatan, Bali into an artistic family in 1970. He previously studied art at the Indonesian Institute of the Arts. The artist observes the world around him with a particularly acute perception, and has always been skilled in using stunningly intriguing "novel perceptions" to interpret the many facts and facets of everyday life. Since the advent of the Art Nouveau movement in Indonesia (1974-1979), a wide range of artistic languages and expressions have been developed within the realm of Indonesian art. Pande Ketut Taman is extremely innovative in terms of interpretation and perception; he utilizes a diverse number of approaches to achieve the "deconstruction" of each artwork in order to explore the concepts hidden within its visual imagery. Pande Ketut Taman, through his artworks, endeavors to express the primal spirit from deep within Mother Earth to the viewers in order to connect us to nature, and has told many tales of ancient myths and folklores using brush strokes of rustic simplicity.
