About the artwork
This evocative piece by Indonesian artist Tjokorda Bagus Wirtamaja depicts three bulls charging at full speed. The vivid red used by the artist to paint the background conveys the intensity of the moment, and reflects the ferocity of the animals’ movements. On the left of the canvas, the artist uses long and quick brushstrokes that stretch horizontally across it, engulfing the bulls’ bodies in a blur of grey. This nuanced technique vividly illustrates the speed they are charging it, further heightening the intensity of the scene conveyed. This powerful work highlights Tjokorda’s skillful ability to capture riveting scenes of the animal kingdom through fearless colour exploration.
