This year-end holiday, InterContinental Bali Resort invites you to an “ArtVaganza”-themed festive season featuring an astonishing art exhibition, festive dining experiences, family-friendly activities and lively entertainment.


With the festive season approaching fast, luxurious Jimbaran resort, InterContinental Bali Resort, has unveiled its line-up of promotions and events with an art-focused theme entitled “ArtVaganza“. The ArtVaganza festive season draws inspiration upon the parallels between the arts and the spirit of festivity.

Celebration of Life

ArtVaganza 2

This year, the resort will showcase an exhibition by Indonesian artist, Arya Trimni Putra, entitled “Celebration of Life”  that will run from 2 December 2019 to 7 January 2020. The fascinating exhibition will showcase more than thirty of Arya’s remarkable artworks that will be tastefully displayed throughout the resort. The resort will also be organising exciting painting class sessions by Arya during the entire period of the exhibition.

Originating from Surabaya, East Java, Arya is a record-breaking artist as documented by the Indonesian World Records Museum, after he triumphantly completed 1000 abstract paintings in 30 days. Before he became an artist, Arya maintained a successful career as a Psychologist but a tragic turn in 2001, where he lost his mother and wife, completely altered his direction in life. Devastated with grief, Arya’s friends gifted him with blank canvases as a means to channel and express his raw emotions through art. The resulting creations fascinated many, and the positive reaction encouraged Arya to become a full-time artist who is dedicated to giving back to the community.
