I Nyoman Masriadi was born 1973, in Gianyar, Bali and received his training in art at the Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta. Through his expert control of light, shadow and volume, Masriadi endows the monumental characters of his artworks with a sculptural, almost three-dimensional presence.

Sometimes these characters appear in the archetypal roles of comic book heroes, cowboys, soldiers and athletes, but just as frequently, they are simply powerfully built men and women engaged in solitary acts of strength or captured in private moments of vulnerability.
