Story Behind the Art:
My name is Nyoman Togog Suyasa, born in Tampaksiring, Gianyar Bali in 1954. My parents are farmers, I'm the 3rd child from total 4 children. When I was in the 2nd year of an elementary school in Tampaksiring, my father had passed away due to disease that spread because of Mount Agung volcano eruption disaster. Our condition very limited after, I used to work hard to help my parents and sisters, I learned about wood carvings and worked as artisan after school so I can pay school fee and help my parent to buy foods and also school fees for my sisters. Bali is a very nice place that has so many beautiful scenery and rich of cultures. Most of people in the neighborhood are wood and bone carving artisan. We have so many ideas to develop our product designs. I learned about wood carving for the first time from my neighbor. He is a kind man and know our limited condition. He gave me a wise words to work hard so my children will not suffer the same problem as mine. I sold my first products to him, and after that I also sell my product to Sukawati market which is a famous market in Bali that offers traditional art products from local artisans. After graduated from elementary school, I cannot continue my study to a junior High School since I can not pay the school fee. In 1977 I married a beautiful woman which is still my neighbor, and we have 2 daughters and 1 boy. Become a father, it means more responsibilities, more expenses and more hard to work for our future. People know me as a kind and smart man. My wife helps me in this business, and we opened a shop near our house that sell my products. We had many artisans that helping me if there were huge orders. But after Bomb tragedy in Bali, we have no any custumer that buy my products. Until finally we decided to temporary closed the shop. I only do small amount production now. As material I use woods, coconut shell and metals. Now I work with the help of 5 persons only. They were processed with manual tools like: knives, saw, chisel and mallet. I know Novica from my friend in the past, but my daughter (Eka) and my son (Komang Agus Saputra) are already Novica artisans. Because our products and ability are different, I also would like to join Novica to expand my market worldwide.
