Blanco, arguably the most famous and successful artist to ever live in Bali, built his magnificent studio on top of a mountain overlooking the Campuan River. This flamboyant building, a unique blend of Balinese architecture imbued with the spirit of his native Spain, houses an interesting collection of works drawn from different periods of his long career.
Rudana Museum is a museum that was conceptualized, built and developed with a comprehensive paradigm. By occupying the building that was specially designed as a museum, Museum Rudana incorporates the profane philosophy (holy), where each building in this Museum carries symbols of human devotion to God the mighty Creator.
As one who has lived in and been involved with the world of art, particularly the art of painting, my love for that world has grown daily. My interest and dedication increased dramatically after seeing the collections of two museums in Bali, the Puri Lukisan Museum and the Neka Museum.
