Ida Bagus Nyoman Sanur Tampi (1917–1980)

Coming from a poor family of Brahmana priests, Sanur Tampi never received an education, although he could speak a little Malay. He himself later became a priest.  (H. Geertz 1994: 110) Sanur Tampi learned how to paint from his older brother, Ida Bagus Togag (who did not produce many paintings).

He once presented a picture to Spies and Bonnet for criticism, and he was a member of the Pita Maha. There are thirty-four pictures by him in the Bateson-Mead Commission (H. Geertz 1994: 110).
