Born in 1969 in Kelusa, Payangan, I Made Lanus first learned painting when he was 12 years old. I Made Astawa, one of the pioneers of Keliki’s mini paintings, was his mentor.
Lanus, now an emerging artist, mixes the best of his teacher’s with his own style; creating an Ubud-Keliki school of painting which is appealing and fresh. He is good with details and is also bold in experimenting with colors and theme. Lanus has his artworks exhibited in Puri Lukisan Museum, Bali.
