About Artist:

Rabet MS   (1947 - 2017)

Born in Tretes, East Java.29/9/1947, impressed by the arts since he was a young boy. He Graduated from the Academy of Art in Surabaya (AKSERA). In 1966 he participated in numerous group exhibitions.

Rabets first exhibition was held in Surabaya. Where he was one of the youngest participants among seniors like Amang Rahman, Krishna Mustajab, Sudaryono, Rudi Isbandi, OH? Soepono, Gathuk kusumo (papa) etc.
In 1970 he moved to Bali and lived there for 9 years, broadent his search and studied the technique of Le Mayeurs painting.

Rabet mostly did realistic painting and never ceased to explore fine arts but since 1984 he felt that contemporary abstract art allowed him to play freely with his expression showing the relationship between man and god and also the relationship of human beings with one another in the hope this will help mankind return to a wholesome and pure condition. In such a condition,n mankind could always listen to the soul and reach out to others in peace. Rabet also wants to share the freedom he enjoys, by letting the viewer interpret his work in their own imagination.

From 1974 until 1976 he painted for the bank of Indonesia, and established the Balinese artists association: Citra. He moved to Jakartain 1979 and settled in Pasar Seni for about 10 years. From 1966 - 1984 was the period where Rabet painted a kind of realism. At the present time Rabet is singing and dancing through his painting as a witness to the almighty god.

Rabet passed away on Sep 2017 in Bali, the land which he love the most.

Rabet passed away on September 2017 in Bali where he spent his last period of life. Where he wish to spent his age to keep creating paintings and build a museum for his work of art, in land which he love most, Bali.
