About BIDADARI Art Gallery

Please take a look at the logo of Bidadari Gallery. It consists of two parts: the mulberry-colored part and another light-colored one behind it. The main logo and sub-logo make up the logo of Bidadari Gallery.

First, the light-colored figure depicts a tree and a man coming closer to each other, developing into something very powerful as they become one.

There is a legend in the village of Mas in Ubud where Bidadari Gallery opened. "A monk named Danhyannirarta put a twig into the ground. It came into bud, grew into a big tree and bore flowers of gold ("mas"). The monk who saw it told the villagers that they should live out of trees."

The profound meaning of his words can be interpreted as to be creative, making something out of dead tree branches or a philosophy of life. His teaching eventually led the village of Mas to develop into a center of sculpture.

Bidadari Gallery was also born here. Accordingly, I want to pay my respect to the wisdom that brought forth our birth and to treasure its identity.

The deep-colored logo on the other hand, was designed, incorporating the leaves, water and sunlight that a tree needs to grow and its gwill to grow.h This represents ourselves, those of a new generation born out of tradition with an intention to live in harmony with nature.

In this way, we at Bidadari Galley wish to be an enterprise with human power like a seed full of the power of nature, based on the wisdom passed on by our tradition and ancestors.

We also wish to be a source of inspiration like nature and put forward an art that can warm people's heart, just as nature does.

With the mission of preserving and developing sculpture, Bidadari Gallery holds exhibitions of sculptures and other artworks, including paintings, and sells these works. We also plan and manage art events, centering on the theme of cultural exchange and promotion.
