Born 1983, from Wangdue
As a young boy I would try to copy the artwork in monasteries and temples. This led me to study at the National Institute of Zorig Chusum. My teacher would always say, “Anyone who gives you work, do it with perfection. Their happiness in seeing your work will bless your path too.”
Assisting my teacher in painting statues led to many prestigious projects and exhibitions outside Bhutan. One of my Thangka scroll paintings is still exhibited in the Bhutan Museum in Japan. Some of my artworks are part of the inner sacred sanctum of Tashichoe Dzong which is open only for the Je Khenpo and our Kings.
My creations make me grow and solidify my identity, and overcome the aggressions I had as a young boy.
