Bali Budaya - Balinese Compound, Gallery and Local Art Community


About Bali Budaya

Bali Budaya was established in 1982 on a 1.9-hectare block of land by I Wayan Sila to help distribute the work of the carvers from Sumampan and its surrounding areas.

Actually Bali Budaya has been I Wayan Sila’s family residence for generations. It also became a collective studio for the carvers in the 60s and 70s. Before Bali Budaya was established, most of the carvings were marketed through then the only art shop in Denpasar.
