Living is dying

Art Description

I believe that the true essence of Buddhism is the buddha nature. We all have the buddha nature within us and the potential to attain enlightenment.

Mentsi cloth is symbolically representative of our familiar culture – used to celebrate birth, promotions, marriage, and death, small joys, and big sorrows until we find a way to enlightenment.

Pema Tshering (Tintin)

Born 1985, from Thimphu

A Bhutanese contemporary artist for over 19 years, I am popularly known as Tintin. I like to re-examine Buddhist and Bhutanese concepts, freeing them from their expected, familiar contexts and reframing their meaning.
