About the Artist

As a young kid I had little interest in academics and enjoyed drawing. It became my favorite thing to do and eventually I realized the love for art at a very young age. I joined VAST Bhutan in 1998. I gained a lot of knowledge which encouraged me to pursue a career in art as a full-time artist. Today, I am a contemporary artist based in Thimphu, working as a freelancer. My work has been exhibited in several Asian countries such as Nepal, Malaysia, China and India.

Born 1983, from Trashigang
