Ubud is well known as an artist’s community. There are a few high-class galleries that are worth a visit to see traditional Balinese and contemporary art, such as Agung Rai Museum of Art (ARMA), Neka Art Museum, Antonio Blanco Museum, and the Museum Puri Lukisan.
There are also plenty of art shops around town including the Ubud art markets, selling an abundance of artwork and trinkets as mass-produced tourist pieces.
However, there is another free public gallery that is often overlooked – graffiti! There is graffito around that is quite interesting, but not quite the standard of Melbourne laneways. It is the stencil art that I particularly like. Here are some of the stencils I have captured as I’ve slowly explored my way around the town.
