An artist so revered in Bali, Lempad is often known as Lempad of Bali. Lempad's House in Bali pays homage to the unique craft of the legendary Balinese artist, I Gusti Nyoman Lempad. Responsible for the distinct style of architecture that most of Bali's temples and palaces have become emblematic of, Lempad is a household name in Ubud, and the late artist's residence has been turned into a gallery of some of his artworks that can be viewed. The estate is still run by his surviving family members and is complete with a beautiful Balinese garden, and is a must-visit for all art-aficionados.
Lempad’s House is commonly referred to as The Lempad of Bali House. The house is well-maintained and is open for public visits. It is being managed by the late artist’s surviving family. On selected days, one family member greets the visitors and gives them a tour of the house while narrating Lempad’s life experiences. Visitors must note that Lempad’s House does not display the legendary artist’s complete collection as many artworks are exhibited in museums.
I Gusti Noman Lempad was best known for his ink drawings of Balinese Hindu legends, many of which are displayed at the Lempad’s House. Art lovers are sure to admire the meticulousness of his masterpieces. Many of Lempad’s artworks are also available for sale.
A collection of his paintings and line drawings have been preserved in his workshop and not hung up for sale. Don’t forget to tour the Chinese Block that was used for mixing ink.
