Thinley Gyeltshen

Born 1997, from Trashigang

I graduated from the National Institute of Zorig Chusum, Bhutan’s premier school of traditional arts. My works are mostly spiritual paintings. I find that the act of creating these works is a healing process in itself. I use the traditional style for my work, but do not constrain myself to the traditional rules which do not allow for variation. My work is a way to express myself and be creative using the traditional style, in a way that my heart accepts.
