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]
