Visiting Lempad House

Lempad was one of the great Balinese artists to have befriended well-known European artists who also contributed to the Balinese art ‘renaissance’, including German painter, Walter Spies, whose body of work includes line drawings that depict Balinese life. After his passing in 1978, a regal cremation ceremony was held to honour his lifetime of achievement. His house on Jalan Dewi Sita still contains a number of his artworks produced during in his lifetime, ranging from sculptures around a beautiful Balinese garden to a collection of paintings in the home gallery.
   
Lempad House is well-maintained and managed by the late artist’s family, and is open for public visits. You can explore the beautiful gardens laid out with his wooden sculptures, some of which have blended in with the plant and floral growth. A great collection of his line drawings and paintings are also preserved in his workshop, although not many are hung up on display. On selected days, one of the late artist’s family members may greet you, and show you around while explaining about Lempad’s life and art. The house is a great spot to visit on your tour through Ubud central, especially on your walks down the Jalan Raya Ubud main street.
