The Semar Kuning Coop is filled with gorgeous original works by very talented artists. The staff is extremely helpful and the works are easily transported. If you stop in Bali you must come here!

I've grown accustomed to the pushy sales people who won't leave your side and offer a running commentary on whatever you are looking at. I was prepared to not enjoy my time while my friends looked for art. Lucky for me, our guide was thoughtful,...More

We had been to this gallery several times before. It has always delighted. You get a non-aggressive guide who quietly describes the different schools of Balinese Art, and the recent influences that are shaping it. Prices are Bargain Basement, especially for large works. The guide...More
