Born in Selat, Sangeh, Bali (1963).

The artist won the Philip Morris Indonesia Art Award in 1994.

His creativity has been documented in the book Mangu Putra: Nature, Culture, Tension (2000).Mangu Putra’s works arise from intense contact with the world as a conscious expression of his main creative orientation. Representations of natural phenomena, along with the inner pulse of life, form the main stream of his search. The natural world, such as mountains and coasts, are depicted as identifiable objects. Some of his works with abstract designs imply natural images, such as the character of water and the texture and colours of earth or stone.
