Buddha

The artwork represents the Five Wisdom Buddhas in their elements,  a development of the Buddhist Tantras, and later became associated with the trikaya or “three body” theory of Buddhahood. The Five Buddhas are the aspects of the dharmakaya “dharma body” which embodies the principle of enlightenment in Buddhism. 

The elements of fire, earth, water, wind and emptiness/space each represent the five directions with its symbolism (center-teaching the Dharma, north- fearlessness, west-meditation, south- giving, east-humility).The Five Wisdom Buddhas are The Wisdom Buddha of the Essence of the Dharma-realm Meditation Mudra, The Wisdom Buddha of Perfect Practice, The Wisdom Buddha of Observation,The Wisdom Buddha of Equanimity and The wisdom Buddha of Reflection.

About the Artist

In 2018 I graduated in the field of traditional art (Lhadri) from the National Institute for Zorig Chusum where I was trained for 6 years. Now I work as a traditional artist in a private company  where we blend both traditional and contemporary art. I often collaborate with VAST Bhutan and volunteer there whenever I can. While volunteering in VAST Bhutan projects I get to learn from my VAST friends and mix the techniques of contemporary art together with the traditional art. I hope to create many more artworks by combining the two methods of creating that  I have been blessed to learn.

Whenever I paint, I first focus on my body posture and eventually my thoughts get focused too.  I always want to create meaningful thought-provoking artwork, for which we need all the ideas, interest and effort combined. The outside world and the issues surrounding our lives, both sad and happy ones, inspire me to create.

My interest and passion in paints and colors inspires me everyday to do my best in creating a piece of art.
