The painting portrays a striking convergence of elements, where the harshness of barbed wire fencing seamlessly melds with the intricate elegance of a Vajra in a mesmerizing diamond pattern. The juxtaposition of the two seemingly disparate subjects symbolizes a harmonious blend of strength and enlightenment. The barbed wire, with its sharp edges and connotations of division, softens into delicate lines, intertwining with the Vajra’s symbolic representation of thunderbolt-like illumination and spiritual power. This fusion creates a thought-provoking visual narrative, inviting contemplation on the interplay between the earthly and the divine, the harsh and the profound, ultimately revealing a profound unity that transcends apparent contradictions.

Born 1992, from Punakha
I have a BA in Graphic Designing from Beacon House National University, Lahore, Pakistan through the VAST Bhutan art scholarships. My inspiration to pursue art started with my brother encouraging me to draw.
To me art is a therapy, companion and meditation. My inspiration usually comes from the surrounding nature that I live in– as my mentor once said, “Nature is the best teacher”.
Art has helped me to grow into the person I am today. When I create, I feel gratified because I let all my emotions flow through my heart to my brain, then to my fingers and then onto the canvas. The painted canvases are visuals of my feelings. The best thing about being an artist is that you can express anything with various colours and forms that exist in your imagination.
