Putu PW Winata - latest works
20 June 2023 - 31 July 2023
in collaboration with Galeri Zen1
“Winata’s artworks are mostly about nature phenomenon and landscapes. He set aside the rules of realism and perspective, that way he seems to let nature grow and extend beyond his canvas. Rather than a landscape portrait, his paintings are a dynamic form of life with all the possibilities. Putu PW Winata’s painting is guided by intuition to create a symphony between color and motion that feels wild yet controlled, free but measured, random yet structured” as described by Arief Bagus Prasetyo in PW’s solo exhibition
Putu ‘PW’ Winata was born in Denpasar February 27, 1977. He attended the Faculty of Fine Arts, Metal Crafts Department, at the Indonesian Art Institute, Yogyakarta from 1995 to 1999. At the same time, his interest in the field of painting was also forged, along with his peers in the Sanggar Dewata group of which he has been an active member since 1997. His works expressed his admiration for the beauty and majesty of nature. Meanwhile his perseverance when exploring, practicing and experimenting within the process of self-discovery made his works become more authentic. Putu ‘PW’ Winata has been active in creating and exhibiting since 1996.
