    Chong Amo Sanur Boats

    Sanur Boats

    ‘Sanur Boats’ 2008

    Chong Amo
    acrylic on canvas
    Balinese boats are quite often painted yet this is a rare painting. Usually, they are painted from the front view due to the fact that they are carved and painted to look like a billfish. This piece by Chong Amo is a refreshing change of composition. It is composed from the rear of the boat making it unique and further, the colors are brilliant.

    This is my favorite flora painting of Chong Amo to date. I just love the different leaves against the strong branches offsetting the wonderful sense of depth. Keep up the good work Chong!

    Simple and delicious. This is a newer piece by Chong Amo painted at the end of 2008 at the same time as ‘Contemplation’. Beautiful, elegant, and soon to be sold!

    Wonderful subtleties of color and depth. One of the first pieces of Chong Amo to jump out and say ‘take me to America’.

    Meeting Chong Amo

    Meeting Chong Amo

    I first met Chong Amo in July of 2007 while having dinner at a local
    rib joint ‘Naughty Nuri’s’ where I was having dinner with Neal Adams
    and his wife Ayu.  At the time he was painting with a local carving
    and painting factory. Shortly after he began working for and with
    Neal Adams. It was at this point that our relationship developed
    having regular lunch at Neal’s studio. One day I saw him painting a
    beautiful piece and informed him that I was unaware of his talents.
    He smiled and over the following months produced a number of works
    that made there way into JL Galleries. He made his premier with JL
    Galleries during the 2008 An Evening of Art where he sold out of a
    series of still life paintings and made an impact with some of his
    plain air work as well. Since then Chong has continued to develop and
    mature as an artist. JL Galleries is excited to watch him as he
    continues to grow and flourish as he breaks new ground in the markets
    of America.

    Chong Amo Biography

    Chong Amo

    Chong Amo was born 1981 in Bali, Indonesia, in the cultural heart of the island in the Village of Ubud. From a young age he excelled with a talent for the arts. The every day life of the Balinese people revolves around artistic offerings and this was a profound inspiration in nurturing Chong’s natural ability for drawing and painting. His talent was noticed at a young age and he was selected to attend the Cultural and Art Institution in Denpasar, Bali for three years, receiving his diploma. After this period he moved on to study painting in the life class at Pronoto Art Studio under the tutelage of artist Pronoto. Chong continued his art and started working for a company producing murals and art for private homes and other projects mostly for the American market, becoming the manager of the company overseeing the work. While still wanting to paint full time he met with the internationally renowned artist Neal Adams, who is also living and working in Ubud. Neal offered him private tutoring and a space in his studio to paint providing Chong with an outlet and wonderful opportunity to flourish.

    Generally Chong paints plain air embracing his studies from nature. He works with a wide variety of subject matter ranging from landscapes and seascapes to more intimate details of nature. This includes still life work and close ups of plants and flowers. When producing his pieces Chong usually works with acrylics on canvas; he finds this medium gives him an immediacy of expression due to the rapid drying qualities of the paint.
