I used to work in finance in Europe, mostly in Switzerland and in France. I was also collecting a lot of street art, urban art, back then. But six years ago, I was tired with my job and my life in Switzerland and I wanted something a bit more challenging and exciting. I looked for a place where the graffiti on the street art scene was still pretty small but with a lot of potential and Bali is the answer.
I love art in general since I was young. I was lucky my parents took me to the museum to see some arts. I love the process of the creation of art. I love watching people painting wall or canvas. What I love about art also it connects people.
Graffiti is all about community. Graffiti in general also connects people. We meet with each other in our community and go somewhere to make beautiful arts. But a lot of people see that as dirty, nasty and vandalism. But that’s not the idea. The Idea is we pain beautiful murals in the community to make the
neighborhood look beautiful.

Our commitment to run this community is simple, that is to provide tools for each member to be able to promote their Bali stories to others. Uploading to their social media and link to their personal website so others can follow the full story. Please see here to view the benefits of membership.
This community has a sole purpose - to promote Bali, more than just a holiday island, but memorable place to live in. From the members' real stories, people can follow and witness how their life improves because of Bali. There is saying either "Bali kicks you out or she sucks you in.
This community was initially prepared for the portal for couples who looked for wedding information in Bali. However amid the pandemic, the website is then transformed into the community of online business in Bali. The goal is to assist whatever it takes for giving opportunity for every people in Bali to sell online. Besides setting up an e-commerce platform, they benefit with our video-making experience
This community is created with one mission - to promote a different value to what most people know about Bali already as a holiday island. But instead, this community empowers the stories of how people chose Bali and how they wish to inspire others to live for a better future. Thus, it invites local people or people internationally who were touched by Bali
