Neka Art Museum

Pande Wayan Suteja Neka, the son of I Wayan Neka, a famous wood carver who was a member of the Pitamaha. He trained as a teacher but decided to give up teaching in order to help his father present his artwork and to document and preserve Balinese paintings. Starting with a small shop in 1966 he sold high quality painting to foreign tourists, who of course took them out of the country. Realizing the need to document and preserve Balinese art he began collecting works. In 1975, Suteja Neka went abroad with the Dutch artist Rudolf Bonnet. Visiting museums he saw fine examples of Balinese art which could not be seen in Indonesia. Returning home he resolved to establish Neka Art Museum.
