Ida Bagus Anom was born in 1953 in Mas, Bali, in the same compound in which he and his family live today.   This compound is the same place where this artistís father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and their ancestors have lived for over 700 years.  Anom inherited his artistic talents form his father, the noted maker Ida Bagus Ketut Gelodog, who taught him carving, dancing and puppetry.

Although Ida Bagus Anom began making masks when he was eleven years old, Anom first planned a career in the tourism industry.  After finishing high school, he attended the Academy of Hotel and Tourism in Denpasar, Bali.  Anom soon realized that he preferred the life of an artist and today he is an accomplished masker and dancer.  Anom loves his art and performs in many ceremonies, festivals, and specially arranged performances for visitors out side of Bali.  Masks made by this great artist are many and are based on Geek, Noh and Commedia designs.  He has created many original designs, such as the yawning mask, and the happy/sad mask.
