From Hell to Enlightenment

Art Description

Within the Mandala/Wheel of life and the daunting Eighteen Levels of Hell and mirroring its ways of doing so, exist a realm of obstacles nestled in between. When we embrace these challenges with positivity, they draw us nearer to the path of enlightenment. However, if we succumb to negativity, we find ourselves descending into the well-worn, harsh eighteen levels of hell. This complex interaction emphasizes the delicate dance between our spiritual journey’s direction and the transformative power of our choices.

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.
