This 2m x 1.5m piece was completed over months with a few trips to Bali and USA in between.
It ties together Candy’s heritage, home, holidays, family and favourite things in one big colourful artwork.

Commissioned artwork by Reif Myers of Nugget’s favourite spots in Bali
Living in Perth, just a 3 hour flight from Bali, I’ve visited the holiday island over 40 times since I first moved to Australia. The surf, cool bars, restaurants and vibe around the Seminyak/Berawa/Canngu area make it one of my favourite places to go when I have a week or so off.
Having tons of fun experiences and memories at all the surf spots, bars and restaurants Nuggsy mentioned to include it was easy to get stuck into. By starting to use a paint pallete more often it has helped develop my style by mixing colours and allowing more flow through the painting. It gives it a rough feel, creates depth and allows other colours to pop out. I loved painting this and hopefully Nuggsy can entertain his guests with some stories up there through the painting!! Hopefully some hoo…….ps !
