By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, September 24, 2018 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

If you’re visiting Bali over the next month or so, you might want to drop in to see the latest exhibition by the talented freediving photographer Pepe Arcos. Running from September 28 till October 26, “Corals of Asahan” promises to show corals “as they have never been shown before.” The name of the exhibition comes from the South Lombok location where the images were taken: Gili Asahan. And, of course, everything was shot on breathhold.

The limited edition prints are on display at the new Holiday Canggu Art Gallery, in Canggu, a resort village on the south coast, near Seminyak, and 30 percent of the profits go to South Lombok’s Coral Conservation project.


Art Exhibition by Pepe Arcos Opens September 28th at Holiday Canggu Art Gallery
A new exhibition by Pepe Arcos opens September 28th at the Holiday Canggu Art Gallery, Canggu, Bali, Indonesia. The exhibition features 7 limited edition large sized prints and will be on display until October 26th

In the exhibition ‘Corals of Asahan’, Pepe Arcos draws a straight line between art and Conservation: he creates a new category of “minimal delicacy”, challenges the sensitivity of the senses, and leaves exciting thoughts in the viewer’s mind about the true beauty of nature, and how important is to take action to protect it.

The artist has arranged his underwater images in the cool cosy Art Gallery at Holiday Canggu, a new venue that just opened in the island of Bali, Indonesia. 

This is a very special Art Collection that will display Corals as they have never been shown before. An innovative style of underwater photography that will surprise the viewers.

The images were taking underwater neat the island of Gili Asahan, South Lombok, while freediving. The coral’s textures and intriguing colors tell a singular story of the fragility in the area specially after the fatal earthquakes that Lombok suffered recently.

Pepe Arcos is an award winning multitalented freediver/photographer, with a filmmaker’s approach to storytelling and a fashion photographer’s eye for form and shape, this multitalented shooter explores this underwater domain, holding breath for minutes at a time to capture unique images of ethereal calm. A talented individual who dodge even greater odds to document aspects of the underwater world in a total new creative way never seen before. 

‘Corals of Asahan’ art exhibition will surprise the gallery visitors with total new way of look into the beauty of our oceans and 30% of the prints price will be donated to South Lombok’s Coral Conservation project.
