Poleng - a Balinese aspect of balance and harmony, chiefly depicted through the checkered fabric of black and white, it showcases Ponco’s collection of paintings that hold sway from the deep philosophical and religious interpretations of Balinese culture.

Kepeng – This art is inspired by a Chinese style coin that was introduced in the 882 AD as a currency. Also known locally as Uang Kepeng, Pipis Bolong and Jinah Bolong, to date it is still used in the Balinese Hindy-ceremony as part of the offerings.

Realism – The Realism (or naturalism ) collection by Ponco is attempted to represent subject matter truthfully without artificiality and avoiding artistic conventions, implausible and supernatural elements. His last realism paintings represent the portraits of Beauty Balinese nature, culture and religion.
