JUST

painted 

is een fairtrade online galerij voor lokale schilders uit de hele wereld. Het is een non-profit initiatief met als doel schilders, die proberen hun hoofd boven water te houden en die proberen een boterham te verdienen met hun schilderkunst, een platform te bieden in Europa.

In veel landen worden schilders in "productiefabrieken" tegen een hongerloon ingezet om schilderijen te kopiëren. Ze werken vaak 12 uur per dag voor een paar dollar en mogen hun schilderijen niet signeren. Deze schilderijen worden dan tegen dumpprijzen verkocht in supermarkten aan toeristen. Sommige schilders proberen op eigen kracht of met een aantal vrienden hun eigen schilderijen te maken en te verkopen in heel kleine galerijen in drukke straten of langs de rand van de weg.

JUST

painted 

wil deze schilders helpen door op deze online galerij hun werk aan te bieden. De schilderijen worden verkocht voor de prijs die zij ervoor vragen, dus zonder afdingen of kortingen. Veel van deze schilders hebben geen internet, geen smartphone en soms zelfs geen bankrekening. Voor hen zijn de online galerijen een verre droom en velen durven zelfs niet te geloven dat ze door middel van JUSTpainted schilderijen in Europa zullen verkopen. Laten we hun droom waar maken!

"Fair trade and affordable prices" is de rode draad. De schilders krijgen de prijs die zij ervoor vragen en desondanks blijven de prijzen van de schilderijen laag. Toegankelijk voor iedereen.

Ook de website en de grafische vormgeving zijn uitgevoerd door vrienden die zelfstandig proberen een toekomst op te bouwen en met hun gaven een centje te verdienen.

Een selectie van de schilderijen zijn geplaatst tegen een muur, op dezelfde manier als dat veel schilders hun werken tentoonstellen. Door op een schilderij te klikken kom je op de sub-pagina van de betreffende schilder, waar meer van zijn werk te vinden is en waar meer details weergegeven zijn.

JUST

staat voor 'rechtvaardig of eerlijk' geschilderd, 'zojuist of net' geschilderd en voor 'alleen maar' geschilderd. Geen high-art of top prijzen. Een schilderij, niet meer en niet minder.



Wanneer u interesse heeft in één of meer schilderijen, dan kunt u een e-mail sturen onder vermelding van de naam van de schilder en de naam van het schilderij. Bij aanschaf van een schilderij dient u rekening te houden met het feit dat:

In the village Sanur we met our first painter: Erwin Bastomi. Together with some friends he runs a small gallery called Argent Painting. Erwin is born the 25th of July in 1972. He was instantly enthusiastic about our plans. His friends Hariyanto Albat and Ari Alkumar also display their paintings there and they joined the

group as well. Erwin paints different styles: fields of flowers, Buddha’s, landscapes and he also likes to paint on command. We send a picture and he will paint it.

Hari paints Koi’s, landscapes or boats and harbors. He also paints in command, so send your picture of your own Koi and he will paint it for you.

Ari Alkumar
Ari Alkumar is the other friend of Erwin, that we met in the gallery. Ari is born the 27th of April 1981 and he works the gallery in the evenings. He paints beautiful sunsets and Balinese girls and often he paints on one painting together with Erwin, each with his own specialty. In the painting “birds in bamboo” (see page Erwin) he painted the birds. He is one of the few who knows how to e-mail, but we often do not understand them, hèhè.

Gede is born on the 20th of February 1973 in Lovina (north of Bali). He's married and has two sons. Gede paints contemporary art. When we explained him

Ida Bagus Made Bawa
Within the same beach market in Sanur Bali, we found a little gallery with traditional Batuan Art. Bawa is born on the 31st of December 1963, married and father of two. He comes from a family of painters who try to keep the traditional art of Bali alive. This style is very detailed and therefore time-consuming and expensive. “The Gods in Heaven” is more detailed than the others. The colored painting is a family product of Bawa. This is the real traditional Batuan art, a process of months. It is not for sale, but for the right price...

Lemon Wajan
In Ubud, near to the Monkey Forest we found Lemon's gallery. Lemon is born on the 1st of January 1969 and is father of 3. His painting style is abstract, colorful Buddha’s or a combination of the both. A couple of his paintings were wrapped in plastic and that's why you see a reflection in the picture. Especially the Buddha's combined with writing are extraordinary.

Gusti Ngurah Parnata
On our way to a textile shop we found a coffee shop and small gallery in Ubud, Bali. It was run by the family of painter Parnata and he has an unique style as you can see. I had to wait for more than an hour, because they had to cleanse their family temple first. Parnata is the one painter who understands best the principle of

, although his sister in law had to explain first. But he already made a picture of one of his new paintings and sent it to me to place it in this gallery.

Dewa Dek
Just outside of Ubud we found Dewa Dek, who paints the traditional Pengosekan style, unique for that region. Dewa Dek is born on the 17th of December 1982 and he is father of three. Like most painters Dewa Dek has no smartphone or usable bankaccount. Therefor all transactions have to go through a friend of ours. The Pengosekan style is much more detailed and “soft” and hence a bit more expensive.

Pristo
In the gallery “Puritegal Sari” we found the beautiful paintings of Pristo. In this gallery hundreds of paintings of various painters are sold. The paintings of Pristo were special and they were signed by the painter. Pristo works in the gallery, when he's not painting. Because his English is very poor, all contacts are with Ibu Jero, sort of the “manager” of the gallery. Pristo paints ricefields and other landscapes and sometimes he signes with “Venia”, his daughter's name.

Sujana
In Kuta, Bali, we found a little gallery on a corner of a busy street. Not the most obvious place for a gallery. It was ran by Sujana, the painter who most impressed us. When you look in his eyes, you see all the emotions of disbelieve and fear to hope that this might be true. He heard it all before. Sujana is a beautiful man with no bank account, no e-mail and he cannot text. In the small gallery he tries to sell his work and the work of his brothers.
