Tshewang Tenzin

Born 1978, from Mongar

At the age of 12 I started painting, inspired by a patriline of thangka painters. I spent 10 years after that as a student of traditional art and another 20 years as a traditional art teacher. In the year 2007, at the SAARC art camp, I got to know Asha Kama, the pioneer of contemporary art movement in the country. From there on- I started exploring the wondrous world of art more.

My themes mostly consist of the change and connection between the traditional and contemporary. I paint to learn more about myself. I hope that with my search through these creations I get to inspire my students and the viewers who see my art to learn a little more about themselves.
