Furry Friends

Art Description

This style of painting on dried tea bags is special for me as I consider it a part of

my uniqueness compared to the typical canvas. Being an avid dog lover, I

wanted to show my adoration of the creatures in my own way. It was not easy to

fit every detail in a tiny tea bag but I did my best to catch the joy in their

smiles and the innocence in their eyes. Some of the spaces are left blank, I

wanted to relay the message to the viewers that their love cannot be measured,

neither by the shades of every color there is nor by the number of bumps in each of

these textures that have brought them alive in my work.

I hope everyone who looks at this painting understands that every animal, not

just dogs, carries boundless love that we should reciprocate by  caring for

them. Let’s leave some spaces in our hearts too so that we can allow the growth

of love for every being.

About the Artist

Art allows people to look beyond their capabilities and explore the creativity within.

From when I was very young, I was led to painting by my family who always had an appreciation for art. They had a huge impact on my journey to express my thoughts through art. My sketchbook and my pencil were and still are my best friends which I still take everywhere I go.

I like challenging myself to be creative in every and any way possible so that I can be better than I was. Art truly makes me focus on things that are important to me.  I do not limit myself to one medium, style or concept, once I even drew with an eyebrow pencil!

 After joining VAST Bhutan, in search of my own potential, I was able to get out of my comfort zone. The varieties of styles and techniques used by the senior and fellow members amazed and enabled me to understand the value of color, lines and textures. The use of all of my new learnings  allows me to improve  what I love to do the most- make art. I feel a sense of joy and pride when people appreciate my work, so I always strive to do justice to the art I make by not being complacent.

I am so blessed with the opportunity to study art at BeaconHouse National University, Lahore, Pakistan on a scholarship through VAST Bhutan.

My inspiration comes from the people I meet and the places I visit.
