Made Wijaya was born Michael White in Sydney, Australia and passed away in 28th August 2016. He arrived in Bali in 1973, having jumped ship and swum ashore in a rainstorm. A student of architecture, he first of all intended the visit as a short break from his studies, but his fascination with Bali's rich culture and tradition led him to move in with a Brahman family in South Bali. After various jobs teaching tennis and English, working as a tourist guide and photo-journalist, he began contributing to guide books before being asked to design the gardens of the legendary Bali Oberoi.
More than 600 gardens later, Wijaya is a world renowned tropical garden designer whose company, P.T. Wijaya Tribwana International, has a 500–strong team of artisans and "garden commandos," as he calls them. He travels between his Bali base and Singapore, India, Spain, Morocco, Hawaii, Australia and Mexico to weave his magic.
