Hand painted, seamless pattern design I created for Regent Hotels & Resorts, for their new resort in Bali, inspired by local flora and fauna, and ancient Balinese legends.

The Bali Myna, a native bird under the threat of extinction, the Frangipani flower, used for every Hindu ritual in Bali, the rice fields and Mount Agung that define the local landscape and have an important role in Balinese history and belief systems, and the legend of Manik Angkeran and the Dragon - all these elements are brought together to create an illustration that shows the connection between human and nature, the modern present day and traditional spirituality.

Many thanks to the Regent Bali Canggu team for all the research and suggestions during the creation of the pattern.
