'My name is Wayan Kandiyasa and I was born on October 5, 1964 on the island of Bali. I come from a family of artists - my father is also a stone carver, who was taught by my grandfather. I make statues and relief work from a stone called paras. I like both traditional and modern styles. I like very much to work with the Novica team, because now I can help support my family and concentrate on my work with the confidence that it is being promoted outside of Indonesia by people who understand and care about me as an artist.'
