Arie Smit

Arie Smit (b. 1916) is an Indonesian citizen from the Netherlands. His vibrant art celebrates the beauty of Bali and its people. His paintings are visually complex and elegant, with poetic use of colours. His paintings are in several museum collections particularly the Neka Museum in Bali. 
"Bali is rightly proud of having Arie's art as an inseparable part of Bali, and extremely grateful of having the person of Arie, whose life has been and will remain dedicated to the artistic integrity of the Balinese community. Balinese artists will recognise in Arie the relaxed devotion so characteristic of their own creative activities." Dr A.A.M Djelantik (Writer and lecturer on Balinese Culture)
