Being the only son of a legendary artist is not easy, a fact Mario Blanco, an artist and photographer from Bali, knows all too well.

Mario is the only son of world-renowned painter Antonio Blanco, who lived much of his life in Bali and was famous for his fantastic artistic creations.

As Antonio’s only son, Mario has carried the burden of expectations from those who want him to be as excellent as his father. For most of Mario’s career, his father’s reputation and success seemed to overshadow his own path.

However, he has managed to find his own way.

“My father never taught me or wanted me to paint. That is one thing that people never know or understand,” Mario said at the Rondji Restaurant in the Blanco Museum in Ubud, Bali, recently.

“My father always said to me that he was a painter, not a teacher. I should find another teacher,” he added.
