“Puri Lukisan” Museum
Museum Director Pak Tjok Bagus and Master Painter I Gusti Nyoman Darta
Pak Tjok Bagus, a member of the Ubud royal family, has been the director of Puri Lukisan Museum since 1997. His passion is to keep the Balinese arts and culture alive.
I Gusti Nyoman Darta is the nephew and protégé of the legendary I Gusti Nyoman Lempad, Ubud’s most famous artist. Born in 1950, he became a full-time resident of Ubud Palace at the young age of five. Pak Darta’s position at the palace allowed him to study under the last King of Ubud, as well as begin his artistic career under the watchful eye of Lempad himself. Darta is indeed a keeper of Ubud history.
Your program begins with a delicious vegetarian breakfast at our restaurant DAPUR Usada. You will then make your way to the museum, located in the heart of Ubud, guided by our own Usada Cultural Liaison Putu Mahagiri.
You will be greeted by the museum director Pak Tjok Bagus and introduced to the extensive collection. As you visit each gallery, there will be time for you to appreciate the paintings and give space to your own imagination.
At the end of your program, you will have an opportunity to sit in the garden with our senior artist friend, I Gusti Nyoman Darta. Here you will enjoy tea and conversation about the world of art in Ubud.
