Origin: Bali, Indonesia
Balinese Paintings are famous for their remarkable detailing and the visual story telling about Javanese epics. Traditionally, Balinese paintings were two dimensional paintings usually employing bark, parchment and canvas and natural dyes and hues of ochre, crimson and black with oils. Modern Balinese art involves exquisite representation of the rich Javanese cultural heritage with more modern media. These paintings are usually produced organically and in a collaborative fashion and are therefore anonymous many times.
The artists are predominantly situated in the cultural center of Bali – Ubud.
Medium: Museum Quality Fine Art Giclee of the Original Oil on Canvas Painting.
Method: Fine Art Paintings are carefully digitized at high-resolution (300 DPI) to remove any artefacts due to glare or dirt and to colour match the vibrance of the original artwork while preserving every little detail. Then the fine art paintings are gallery wrapped and printed directly onto museum-quality canvas using high-quality 12 Spectrum Archival Inks. A Glossy Laminate is then applied to the Fine Art Giclee in order to protect the surface of the print for extra long durability. Each Giclee is colour corrected to be as vibrant as the Original.
The painting is then stretched on premium quality 3.8 cm/1.5 inch thick (Used for Gallery Wrapping) stretcher bars.
Every painting has a Solid Colour Border Wrapping (Black by default). If there is a specific Solid Colour that you want on the borders, please mention it in the Special Comments while placing the order.
The paintings are ready to hang with a Sawtooth Hanger, Bumpers and Paper Backing on the backside.
Every painting is Handcrafted and Made To Order with attention to utmost detail. The colours in the received painting might be slightly different from the display because of individual display screens resolution and variability.

Giclee printing is a way of creating high quality printing, especially used for Art. Giclee prints are high quality paintings on acid-free heavy canvas. Giclees employ a special application process that uses a series of plates instead of brushes to apply the paint. Though the process is relatively new, giclee prints should maintain their beauty as long as any painting on canvas. The difference between a regular print (Prints / Posters) are that Giclee prints are very high quality prints with special application technique for paints with fade -resistant pigment inks on high quality canvas. This quality makes it desirable to own an art work and pass it on to future generations.
Giclee is pronounced as “Zhee-KLAY”!!
Giclee print is different from poster print in three different ways. The basic criteria are:
Resolution: The resolution for a Giclee print has to be atleast 300 DPI (Dots Per Inch).
Paper: The paper used should be an archival paper and acid free. Anything better than it like Canvas also qualifies it for a Giclee print.
Ink: The ink used for Giclee printing are pigment based vs dye based for regular poster prints.
With the advantage over poster prints in three different dimensions, its far exceeds the quality and durability of a mere poster print.
The main difference between pigment based ink and dye based inks (other than the technical differences) are:
Pigment based ink are less soluble which makes them pretty robust when exposed to sunlight or any light source for that matter.
Pigment based inks have a longevity factor that dwarfs that of dye based inks.
The artwork will be shipped roughly 3-5 days after the order is placed. The time taken for delivery depends on where it is shipped to and the postal carrier’s time for that destination. (usually within 5 days).
Giclee prints are extra high quality museum quality prints that are fade-resistant and can last for generations to come. Though the process is relatively new, giclee prints should maintain their beauty as long as any painting on canvas.
In terms of quality it is very difficult to distinguish to an untrained eye. The only difference that can be made out if you have both in front is if there are strokes of painting in the original that gives some depth (like using a knife to paint would create ridges of paint). Other than that, these two versions practically look the same
In some countries art is practiced in a communal fashion. What it means is that art is pursued for the sake for art and is not attached to an individual. Sometimes, the artists congregate in a single social place which is typically called an art village. Some of the paintings that you see in our catalog are from these art villages. Hence you dont see signatures on some of the paintings.
Customers get a Certificate of Authenticity for every painting that they buy. In the Certificate of Authenticity from Inks N Oils Art Gallery, we guarantee that the print that customers purchased is a giclee print of the original.
Right now, Inks N Oils offers gallery wrapped canvases that are ready-to-hang for the customers. We are developing other options for framing for our customers.
We will take returns if the prints and / or framing is damaged in anyway. If you dont like what you see, we would also honor any returns within a span of 30 days after receiving your painting
