About Deki Choden
I studied 3D animation after high school. I discovered my love for art as a little child scribbling everywhere, even before joining school. The first moment that brought out the artist in me was when I had to help my sister with a school project. After that I would wait for the next creative opportunity with hope and excitement. In school I continued to use most of my time to sketch ( even during serious academic sessions). I recall how I would often end up drawing on the back of my notebooks instead of concentrating in class. I won several art competitions at school which aided me immensely to continue doing what I love. I was a self-taught artist until I joined VAST Bhutan in 2019 where I gained a wider perspective of art. This enabled me to explore dimensions of art through many opportunities to work with different mediums and techniques. From the various projects with other artists at VAST Bhutan I learned the concept of ‘teamwork’ as an important tool in life. Meeting, working and engaging in conversations with different individuals and perceptions concerning art enhanced my own skills. I learned that the knowledge of self-expression is a must-have tool for every individual.
The mediums that I mostly use are acrylic, watercolors, oil pastels, charcoal, pencils and pens. I wish to explore more mediums and techniques in my journey as a contemporary Bhutanese artist.
