If you call Bali home, or you happen to be on the island enjoying some quality diving, be sure to make some time tonight to drop in to Métis Gallery in Badung for the opening of “Other World,” an exhibition featuring the ocean-inspired work of artists from three different disciplines—photography, painting, and sculpture.
Along with cocktails and canapés, you’ll be able to meet the men behind the work: underwater photographer and filmmaker (and regular DPG contributor) Pepe Arcos, artist and painter Wolfgang Widmoser, and sculptor Petter Solheim.
The opening is today, Thursday, 10 October 2019 from 19:00–23:30, at Métis Restaurant and Gallery, Jl. Petitenget No.6, Kerobokan Kelod, Badung (tel: +62-361-4737888). The exhibition is running for the whole of October.
Pepe Arcos is an award-winning multitalented photographer and filmmaker that explores both fine art and commercial visual communication to capture unique images of ethereal calm. From running a Graphic Design studio working for main brands, institutions and organizations to became a creative nomad traveling around the world searching for new projects that takes him to the most breathtaking scenarios in the planet.
Born in Munich in the early fifties he appeared just in time to experience the troubled intellectual European scenery of what is now called the student's movement. He went to Vienna where Ernst Fuchs resided as the living antithesis to reductionist and politicized main stream art in Germany and here Wolfgang learned about shade, shadows and lights. Considered a prodigy, he was sent for some weeks by Fuchs to Cadaques in Spain to study with Salvador Dali.
Petter Solheim is currently living and working in Bali, Indonesia. With a background in fashion design and marketing, he began working and traveling all over Asia and found interests in yoga, meditation, and body awareness. His main material is white sand stone from Yogjakarta and Indigo pigments and his unique technique is called “direct carving”; all the carving is made manually with just a hammer and chisel.
