I Nyoman Ngendon was among the first Batuan painters who embraced the modernisation of Balinese art that took place around the beginning of the 1930s. Ngendon first learned the Wayang-style painting from I Dewa Nyoman Mura, a well-known painter in Batuan. Walter Spies' influence can be seen in their early works (prior to the 1940s). His works can be found in several museums throughout the world.
