Address: Jl. Nelayan street, Canggu, Kec. Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung
Bali has a new space for contemporary art, the Russ Gallery, a place with a well-defined soul rooted in the local cultural and artistic ferment. Since the first exhibitions, the gallery has communicated its willingness to contribute to the regeneration of artists by providing support to young Balinese and Indonesian talents who do not have the space to present their works to art connoisseurs. The proposed aim is to offer emerging artists the opportunity to build their careers and to network with curators, collectors, art lovers, art critics and artists. The scheduled events combine different languages, from fashion to painting passing through the most contemporary installations. The works already exhibited broaden the view on the many pictorial styles of the island which, starting from tradition, arrive at a spiritual abstractionism and a pop in a local key, a development that certainly deserves a visit.
Chinese New Year welcomes the arrival of the Year of the Dragon

Contemporary photography with an ancient taste with I Gusti Agung Wijaya Utama
The Balinese photographer I Gusti Agung Wijaya Utama S. Sn recreates the atmospheres of the past. His portraits, created with great attention to detail, are not the result of digital technology, but of an ancient process: the Afghan box camera.
He is an Indonesian-born artist based in Bali. He finished his education in Fine Arts practice at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 2020. His artistic practice originates from his lived experiences and observations as a Balinese and the religious aspects of Bali.
