Painting connoisseurs who find themselves stranded in Ubud this month should not curse their fate.

Yes, the seemingly eternal traffic jams, the overzealous street hawkers and the hordes upon hordes of noisy visitors tend to make this little town a suffocating place to get lost in.

However, for lovers of good paintings, the town currently offers a rare feast for the eyes: the first biennale of traditional Balinese paintings, featuring more than 150 paintings, including masterpieces from the past and breathtaking works from the present.
