Suanjaya Kencut (1994, Indonesia), as a child of Bali,  He understood how rich his land was in culture, with a treasure trove of artistic creations resulting from the interconnections of history, traditions, and religions. Since he was in vocational school, art has been a part his life. It served as the foundation of his painting practice. He continued his art education at the Yogyakarta Indona Art Institute. Suanjaya began learning arts and crafts in 6th grade. He created his own style with a doll-like persona, which is believed to be Barong or Rangda. It was made by human hands. “It was used to perform ritual purposes, whereas it was easier to make something simple and near me, which also helped me incorporate moral messages into my work.” His previous narrow vision of art, which was limited to the island’s traditions and customs, began to expand to include other perspectives.
