Being Mindful

Art Description

All the sufferings of the world come from the three poisons: greed, ignorance and hatred (symbolised by the rooster, pig and snake). If we can control our senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch without being enslaved by the poisons, then we can attain the purest bliss of being.

Yeshi Pelden

Born 1991, from Bumthang

One winter vacation, assisting my uncle inspired me to pursue art. I joined the National Institute of Zorig Chusum, the school of thirteen traditional arts and crafts school. For all six years there, I was awarded the first division in all of the exams. My final achievement was The Best Outgoing Student medal in 2014.

In February 2017, I had my first solo exhibition in Thimphu, titled “The Hell Wheel of Life” on the six realms of the universe.

I currently work at Art United Gallery which I founded for the preservation and promotion of Bhutan’s traditional arts and culture. It is my aspiration to help the young and unemployed of Bhutan to find creative job opportunities for a positive impact on their life.
