Nonfrasa was founded in 2021 as a platform dedicated for discovering emerging artists and rediscovering leftfield work from artists in Bali, Indonesia.
As art is both reflective and personal in nature, getting a message across in those landscapes is truly difficult, if not nearly impossible at all. Nonfrasa is an attempt to provide a platform, a space, a discourse in which artists could offer their respective and differing perspectives in ways that stimulate dialogue rather than diatribe, that promote engagement rather than abandonment.
Nonfrasa is an inclusive space dedicated to thought-provoking young artists and to make sure that their voices are heard and listened to amid the cacophony of the domineering echo chambers.
