The artistry of Wayan Rendah has been featured in numerous periodicals, including Sunset magazine. "It gives me great pleasure when one of my statues inspires somebody, " the artist says. Wayan Rendah's work has been featured in Home Maker's magazine. I was born in Bali on June 17, 1973. I started to learn to sculpt at the age of eight when I was still in primary school, learning from my father how to carve traditional statues from wood.
Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, such as gamelan dance, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation. After I finished school, I studied with Wayan Purna so as to have a stronger foundation to build upon, because even at a young age I knew that what I wanted was to be able to create the ideas I had in my head.But to do this I needed more experience, and the tools and material I needed were beyond my financial reach. My ideas were unconventional at the time - developing abstract figures inspired by the form and texture of the piece of wood I had selected, combining traditional themes with modern poses and more sensual shapes. As time went by I was able to bring out my ideas by selecting different types of wood and concentrating on the themes that could satisfy my creative desires. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings. The mind and inspiration are two amazing things that encourage me to create special works of art.
Wood has certain special characteristics that I would sacrifice if I worked with another medium like stone, which is not easily broken and produces very specific effects. Since joining Novica, I have been able to continue to express my ideas and to support my family, and my work can be seen outside Bali. I hope that the people who see my work enjoy it, as it gives me great pleasure when one of my statues inspires somebody - for this the foundation of my work. Times were so hard before I joined Novica. I couldn't afford to pay the hospital for my wife giving birth to our daughter.
I had to give up my motorbike, the only thing we had left, to pay the hospital and take my wife and daughter back home. Now we have savings, and are building houses. My place is full of statues we're working on for Novica customers. I just get 24 hours of promotion every day, internationally. This is funny story that once happened to me.
