Uma Seminyak collaborating with Seni Di Bali is holding an illustration competition for the Seminyak Design Week 2018.
The theme is to interpret Bali now, can be anything I want – challenge accepted.
The traditions in Bali never cease to amaze me – even in this modern world the Balinese ladies with their full-on kebaya outfits and make ups, can ride a bike while holding a besek (storage for religious offerings) on top of their head and wooosh to the temples. Amazing.
Here I submitted an illustration of make-believe moment where I can actually ride a bike (the coolest bike to own now, Scoopy, of course) and have great balance – along with my trembling pug. Ah ya, “kirrrrrrr” is a sound expression in Balinese for excitement, like “wheeeeeeeeee”
