Art Description

Offering incense is an ancient practice found in Buddhism. Burning incense is offered to purify, cleanse and heal a space. In this piece of artwork ,I glued different types of incense sticks to create the Buddha. It is my humble offering to this beautiful exhibition titled, Healing with Happiness and I hope it will create some space for the viewer to heal from both within and without.

Phurba S. Tamang (Pops)

Born 1992, from Tsirang

After joining VAST Bhutan, art has become my life. I have been exploring the interdisciplinary arts, from painting, sculpting to performance arts and even carpentry and video blogging.

I do portraits and landscapes in acrylics and watercolour. Working on various projects led by Asha has given me a lot of experience and confidence. I was privileged to win a scholarship to study art in India through VAST Bhutan but was unable to complete my course due to my poor health. At present, I am volunteering at VAST Bhutan.
I enjoy doing contemporary art, which gives me a sense of freedom to express myself.
