Astounding, amazing artwork! Blown away by the talent, set up and friendliness. Our taxi driver had stopped here on the way to Ubud centre as I was desperate to see artwork in Bali and it did not disappoint! The sheer talent, time and thought gone into these pieces of work left me speechless - I had never seen hand paintings like these in my life. I had chosen an outstandingly intricate and impeccable piece of traditional Keliki artwork. The front of house/owner was so genuine, talented and welcoming, the piece of artwork I chose happened to be painted by his own very teacher. He took the time to show me around the gallery and explain the story and meaning behind mine and various other paintings. In my opinion the value they set are very reasonable and worth every penny however I did negotiate on the price. I love how they inspire and teach the younger generations to carry on the tradition. If I had any artistic talent in me I would have definitely loved to attend a class. A must go if you're into art! 10/10

This is the perfect art gallery where they teach the traditional small detailed drawing, which might take months to finish. They also tour you around the house and tell about traditional balinese houses. The professional paintings were costly (hundreds and thousands), but you can get students' works cheaply. I'm not sure whether the prices are just prices where you should start bargaining or not.

Wanted to find some true local artwork and we did. The students and teachers here are so skilled and the work is so detailed. Unfortunately we went in the morning so didn't get to meet the students as they come at 2pm after normal school. But once Wayan found out we hadn't seen a traditional Balinese house before he was more than happy to explain all the different buildings and show us his pigs. The detail that some of these young students have for their work is mind blowing. The art here is much more expensive than at the tourist markets, around $60 for a small piece, but after you see the detail and how many days they spend on each piece it is definitely worth the extra. The money goes to the artists and a small 10% goes to the school for supplies. My kids loved that the paintings were done by someone there age. This place is a must and you get to help keep the traditions alive.

It was a pleasure to visit this studio and meet Wayan Gama, a master in Keliki art. We also met his young local students who are giving up their free time to develop skills in this intricate style. The works are an expression of their cultural heritage, well worth purchasing to support authentic village artisans.

My daughter and I visited this school and were able to see the incredible detailed artistry to the painting - we loved meeting the owner and learning about the school and came home with gorgeous paintings!

We had an extensive visit in Wayan Gama's family compound and a wonderful exposure to Keliki style drawing. He and his family run a great school, with locals as well as tourists participating. If you want to learn more about Balinese art, you must visit. Not far from Ubud, set in the little village of Keliki.

Our wonderful taxi driver for the day suggested we stop off here to check out the art work. He wanted to promote it and we were glad we went. Some lovely youngsters sat around creating individual pieces of work. We bought one piece to take home. We did haggle but it is what they expect. The work is unique and worth a stopover to see for yourself.

First met Wayan Gama over 30 years ago and I have kept in contact with him. His art work has developed over the years but his friendly and welcoming manner has stayed the same.
We love his paintings of ducks, frogs and chickens etc.
last visit we had the honour of sharing a meal with him and his wife in his studio.
They are such a lovely couple and he is one of the last true Ubud artists.

If you love highly skilled art, this is a must visit....the art is so astonishingly detailed and the skill of the children learning is a credit to the school
