Born in Penetasan, Ubud, ali in 1965He is Graduated from the Univercity of South Florida, USA. Master of Fine Art Degree.Empitiness is the starting point for Wayan Karja’s work. Empiness, not in the sense of vacuum aht must be filled from outside, but as an entity itself, state of being from which creativity must develop. Emptiness is a concept deeply rooted in the indu-Buddhist tradition: it is a paradox, as empyiness encompassess entirety and entirety encompasses emptiness, as it a state reached only effortlessly, and with great effort.

Wayan Karja’s painting are minimalist. That is, they express only what is absolutely essential-the essense of their subject, enmeshd withim an interplay of color, line and balance.
