I MADE SANTIKA PUTRA (OMO)

b. 1993 Baturiti, Tabanan, Bali, Indonesia

I Made Santika Putra or better known as Omo was born on January 16th 1993, in a village called Uma Poh, Baturiti district, Tabanan regency in Bali. A fresh graduate from the Ganesha University in Singaraja, Omo was studying at the Faculty of Languages and the Arts, majoring in Art Education.

Omo is no stranger to the art world as he has been introduced to the arts since even before school started. He used to help his father as a child, mixing paint for stencils as his father was a graduate from FKIP Udayana University majoring in Graphic Design. During kindergarten, Omo won the provincial level drawing contest in Bali. It comes as no surprise that he took the next step studying Art Education in college.

Living in the traditional village of Bali, Omo has grown accustomed to seeing cockfights in his daily life. Used to be part of Bali’s traditional routine, cockfight has lately been misappropriated as a mean for gambling. The current environmental hazard problem in Bali, including the wastage of used tires, has inspired him to select chicken and used tires as the subject matter in his artwork creation.
