Born in 1975 in the village of Sayan Ubud, Bali. He is a graduate of the Indonesian Art Institute (ISI) in Denpasar, Bali majoring in fine art. In 2005 he had the opportunity to continue studying art in Germany. His works are often involved in national and international exhibitions, such as in Singapore, Germany and Australia. Her favorite themes are women, children and animals. In some works, Sadu shows minimalist characters, for which he combines a sweep of expressive tendencies with strong and sharp line strokes. In a painting about the animal world, Wayan Sadu shows his skills in drawing strong and flexible lines. In other paintings, the pressure used to draw lines is not expressive, which results in unclear objects whether they are objects, humans or animals.
Wayan Sadu’s paintings were mind-blowing because he used his intuition and the things in his paintings are not lifeless objects. They are his families or his friends, who have stories and histories that inspires him. But his works are also open to interpretation and spark the imagination. Wayan Sadu hopes his artworks always stimulate observers to confuse because it will drive them to look for answers to questions that pop up in their minds. As the artist he has a deep concern for social issues, although he does not like to express criticism explicitly through his works. He does not mind if some people say that his paintings are hard to understand.
Currently Wayan Sadu lives in Ubud, Bali with his wife, a Japanese woman, and they have two children.
