Blanco, arguably the most famous and successful artist to ever live in Bali, built his

magnificent studio on top of a mountain overlooking the Campuan River. This flamboyant

building, a unique blend of Balinese architecture imbued with the spirit of his native Spain,

houses an interesting collection of works drawn from different periods of his long career.

During his life it was visited daily by hundreds of people from all over the world. The artist,

full of "Catalan charisma," earned himself the sobriquet "The Fabulous Blanco," an

expression that mirrored his talent for creativity.
