Pasar Seni Sukawati ( Sukawati Art Market )

Traditional art and handicraft Market close to Ubud

Sukawati Art Market is Bali's oldest and most prestigious art market. Locals refer to it as 'Pasar Seni Sukawati,' and it's where you can locate and buy uniquely Balinese art objects including paintings and sculpted wooden figures, as well as curios, handicrafts, and traditional handmade products. The 2-story Sukawati Art Market is located on the Jalan Raya Sukawati major road in Gianyar, some 20 kilometers northeast of the main tourist destinations of Kuta and Denpasar.
The main building of the art market is frequently busy with tourists and locals looking for household and daily supplies. It's a low-cost, all-encompassing retail attraction conveniently located along most tour routes to the island's central and northern districts.

Sukawati Art Market: What to Buy
Framed paintings, sculptures, traditional woven textiles, traditional kites, handcrafted bags, women's accessories, shirts and sarongs, as well as Balinese ceremonial artifacts and everyday local home products - all at cheap rates – may be found at Sukawati Art Market. The cost of a Bali holiday cotton shirt is determined by the theme, weave, and general quality. The majority of the great paintings for sale here are clones of various maestros' signature styles, such as Antonio Blanco, Arie Smit, Bonet, and Han Snel. Even yet, there are a few paintings in the Kamasan style that are worth looking at. Small-scale A4-size paintings, some framed and some unframed, make excellent easy-to-carry keepsakes. Many stalls on the ground floor sell clothing, sarongs, and fabrics in a variety of sizes, colors, and designs. These can be seen arranged neatly in mounds and hanging from the ceilings. Because of the frequent turnover, created motifs are rarely the same from one session to the next. In the back corners of the art market, you may find aromatic and aromatherapy items like sandalwood oil-infused fans, incense sticks, and colorful jelly candles. Bedcovers come in a variety of styles, including abstract designs and bright colors, as well as artistic depictions of birds and wildlife, as well as images of renowned people like Gandhi and John Lennon. Such eye-catching bedding is typically found on the art market's front stands.
General Information
When haggling, a good rule of thumb is to start at half the stated price, which is probably far closer to the item's true production cost. On your first visit, spend some time wandering the entire market for similar goods of interest and comparing pricing to acquire a basic notion of prices. The rates offered in the Sukawati Art Market are commonly thought to be less than those offered at other art markets in the island's main tourism districts in the south, such as Kuta and Nusa Dua. Aside from the stalls, there are peddlers selling their items to passers-by. Patience is required, since it is easy to become overwhelmed by their incessant bother.

Open : Daily, 09.00 am - 06.00 pm
