Keliki,Farmer- Painter's village Ubud Reviews
A quiet walk through the ricefields and jungle not far from the crowdy Ubud May 05, 2008
Not far from the turbulence of Ubud,u can do a very quiet 3 hours walking tour through the ricefields and jungle to Keliki village,a village of farmer-painters.The Keliki school is like Batuan school characterized by the expression of Balinese mythology and themes of daily life,but in miniature sizes leaving no empty spaces on the canvas.
We did this tour with Wayan Murjana,a French-English speaking driver-guide(phone 0361 7884336 and 081338272777,email email@example.com) who led us to the painter's house where we had a nice veggie lunch and met his young students.
This generous man welcomes these children,sometimes 8 years old and gives us an artistic education to get them out of poverty!
If u visit him,don't forget to bring to him some drawing paper because it is expensive(for him) there.
if u like this kind of paintings,don't hesitate to buy some and so,do a good deed:the price is here a great bargain:we had 3 paintings for 80 bucks!
