On the other side, he paints "rice cooker" made of the repetition of shape of rice. On the other wall, Tien Hong paints a repetition of shape of balloon using yellow circle as the center point. It is quite similar to the picture of the sun and the moon. Meanwhile Dania paints popular icons that according to him can be as the representative of mazab. He makes a repetition of popular icons in parody way in order to re-gain the actual meaning.
The show is mainly aimed at developing the creativity and increasing the innovation and experiment sense among art community, especially in ISI Denpasar. It is also aimed at awarding people that the art world in Bali is not only about traditional painting but modern and contemporary art as well.
