Strongly Wayang based, this style involves hundreds of intricately painted representations of Balinese life filling every available nook and cranny of the canvas. Batuan artists like I Wayan Bendi, Ni Wayan Warti & I Made Budi, make much more of a statement about life in Bali, with subject matter including everything from traditional village activities to camera-toting tourists and even surfers. Earlier Batuan artists, Ida Bagus Made Togog and Ida Bagus Made Wija, dealt much more with the darker, supernatural side of life in Bali with people depicted as extremely vulnerable to the spririts and powers of nature.
