The man's body keeps on moving and dancing, even when he is not moving his body's gestures through the strong muscles always suggest movements. For the past few years IB Putu Purwa is indeed enjoying presenting burly male figures that always move and dance with their unique gestures and body language. Purwa is a young artist from Sanur in Bali, restless with the various problems he sees around him. Through these male figures Purwa presents the problems he feels, using body language and gestures showing screams, sadness, fear, hunger for freedom and so on.

  • +Artist Bio

    Born in 1972, Purwa is a young artist from Sanur in Bali who wants to comment on various problems he sees around him. Through these male figures, Purwa presents the problems he addresses using body language and gestures showing screams, sadness, fear, hunger for freedom and so on. The representation of male bodies in sociological contexts also indicates the issue of power that is mostly patriarchal, but the issue of power is not what Purwa primarily intends to put forth. The male figures in Purwa's works are depicted in an ambiguous manner, as men who do not demonstrate power, but instead wear clown masks of pretension.
