Nyoman Wijaya - cow paintings

I love these paintings of numbered cows from Balinese artist Nyoman Wijaya.

Nyoman Wijaya studied art at the Sanggar Senin Kamis in Sanur, from 1998 to 2003. He was born in 1971 in Tabanan, into a Balinese family who made their living as cattle breeders. “From the time I was small, I learned how to take care of cows, so that I could stay in school by selling cows”, Wijaya says. “At first, I saw it as something that was just ordinary. Until one day, after I had already grown up, my father got cheated and failed in running his cattle trading business. From that point on, I started thinking about cows as an important and special subject in my life journey”. [source BALI ADVERTISER]
