I Gusti Kobot (1917-1999; Pengosekan, Gianyar, Bali) made traditional Wayang Kulit (leather puppets) before he started to point on paper and cloth. His works reflect his classical background, as most of his themes are taken from epic literature. Kobot was a member of the Pitmaha artists' association, but his style remains highly individualistic with softer colors and less stylized figures which still are based on puppet iconography and epic mythology. This was due to the influence of Rudolf Bonnet (Dutch, 1895-1978). Awards : Wija Kesuma (Gianyar, Bali 1977), Dharma Kusuma (Bali, 1981). Exhibitions : Meseum Nasional (Jakarta, Indonesia, 1995) Indonesia-Japan Friendship Festival (Morioka, Tokyo 1997).
