Home of Balinese traditional Painting
Kamasan Village is a traditional painting community in the East Bali town of Klungkung. It is known as the birthplace of one of Bali's most well-known painting styles, and the painters' artistic abilities have been passed down down the years. Many different art galleries and family-run workshops may be found throughout the hamlet.
The Kamasan style, which features visual tales in the shape of wayang (shadow puppet) figures inspired by episodes from favorite Hindu epics such as the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, is common throughout the region, though artworks differ considerably. The ceiling artworks of the Kerta Gosa 'hall of justice' are among the outstanding specimens of the painting style.
