Two Faces of Bali is an exhibition of photography and traditional Balinese masks. “We are delighted to have Jayesh and I Wayan Muka exhibiting their work together at bridges. The stunning photos and fascinating masks are showing two different arts how Bali’s profound significance is explored,” said Claude Chouinard, founder of Bridges. 

South African-born photographer Jayesh Madhoo captures touching moments of beauty and variety in the daily life of Bali. The exhibition shows the photographer’s initial steps on a journey into the realms of discovery regarding the rites, rituals and customs of Balinese people’s culture and traditions. The photography on display at bridges is a multifaceted burst of colorful faces of Bali, in portraits, flowers or ceremonial artifacts.

Mask maker I Wayan Muka studied mask making with many Balinese masters. The works of this exceptional mask carver are incredibly artistic and intricate. Muka enjoys making his masks come alive and will demonstrate this on the opening night of the exhibition.

Bridges supports the charity foundation Bali Kids by donating 20% of the proceeds of the sales of art from this exhibition.

Bali Kids is an inspirational support organization established in 2005 that helps sick and orphaned children in Bali. Every year Bali Kids reaches out to more than 7,000 disadvantaged children providing health education, including a wide range of medical services, such as expert treatment for children who are HIV+.
