Ida Bagus Made Tibah (1916–)
On the Bateson and Mead list of 1930s Batuan painters. Tibah was the son of a moderately well-off pedddler who worked selling carvings to tourists. Despite not going to school, he could speak a little Malay. In the 1970s, he opened a large art shop. (H. Geertz 1994: 112) Geertz claims Tibah was born around 1926.
Tibah had been painting almost as long as Togog and Ngendon, two of the earliest Batuan painters. He studied Bonnet and Spies' paintings and sometimes sent his work for their criticism. He was a member of the Pita Maha, and continued to paint after the war. There are twenty pictures by him in the Bateson-Mead Commission (H. Geertz 1994: 112).
