This painting of the magnificent Buddha symbolizes both deterioration and
preservation of human faith. It could either be in Dharma or humanity in general. The
words of the glorious Buddha have been circulating around the world for
Centuries. Do they still hold value? Maybe, maybe not. The Buddha did not
get enlightened with a few hardships, it was an enormous sacrifice on his part which ultimately
led him to eternal paradise. He brought forth a new dawn for every sentient
being. The disrupted spaces in between signify these sufferings and hardships
in order to guide humanity along the path of enlightenment. However they may
spoil the image, to me the Buddha is an ethereal being which cannot be tainted.
This is depicted by the silken fabric behind the peeling skin. The silken fabric is
considered the standard of the wealthy, which could also point out the richness
in his teachings that will always be held with reverence.

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.
Born 1998, from Trashigang
