I have been serious about art since 2012 while pursuing higher education. Decided to choose Graphic Arts with cukil technique as the final project. After graduating, I focused on making small pieces while teaching as my soul calling. In between the boredom of working on cukil, I am also interested in exploring myself in the world of digital design and fashion design. In 2020, I decided to start a business in the field of Art & Merchandise, namely Artniluh, which is not far from a hobby and what I can do, namely design, while still working.

My artistic process, especially in curated works, apart from seeing real objects and visualizing them in my version, I also give space for my imagination and the artistic process. I support all that is the influence of the culture and the eventual belief in animism and dynamism inherent in the environment I grew up in. Not only me, maybe this kind of belief has an effect on some people with logic to develop their imaginative reasoning. Often the ideas of my work are spiritual or magical things, as well as cultural phenomena that surround me. Capturing that moment gave me a sense of relief, calm, comfort, as well as deep and broad work ideas for me.

I am very fascinated by the cukil technique, one of the videos is that I think this technique has a 'third' dimension even though in a two-dimensional work, which is caused by my sense of touch and I can actually feel the texture of the cut marks. The process of conquering this one technique becomes an addiction, in fact it cannot be conquered just like that. The process that I have been doing for about 9 years has not been operational until now. Of course, this process will not end until later. When picking there is a meditative process that I go through, how I enjoy playing cukil against a rubber or wooden board with an intense rhythm, and how is it possible that I actually find a cukil trail that if 'wrong' can't be returned to the way it was before.

My digital works describe more about Balinese culture, as a Balinese, of course, what I visualize is close and close to me. Every work that I make has its own story. I can explore more and bolder colors in this medium, because if I go wrong everything can be redone more easily.
