Before The Ruins Series

Art Description

I like old traditional houses, it warms my heart. Many years from now all these will be gone and replaced. So while I get the chance to witness such beautiful architecture I want to paint it while it still exists and keep its grandeur alive. 

The plein air technique gives me the opportunity to study my subject and the color palette on the scene, live, alone or with a friend. I get to witness and feel the beauty of nature and the architectural creations of people.

About the Artist

After joining VAST Bhutan, art has become my life. I was encouraged by the founders of VAST Bhutan, especially Asha Kama and Sir Rajesh. I have been exploring the interdisciplinary arts, from painting to sculpting to performance arts  and even carpentry  and video blogging. 

When I was in Class 7 I saw a painting by an artist named Lalith which was published in Kuensel,the local newspaper. That artwork inspired me to start focusing on drawing. One day I heard about VAST Bhutan organizing an art camp in one of the schools in my hometown. I got selected from my school to participate in that camp. Meeting Asha and the senior artist at the camp  inspired me to join VAST Bhutan which I eventually did after finishing Class 12. 

I do a lot of portraits and landscapes but I am also trying to do other subjects to learn and experience more. The mediums that I use are acrylic and watercolor.  I am also an amateur video blogger. I started drawing at a very young age but without proper guidance, I was not able to learn well. Joining VAST Bhutan gave me  so many opportunities to learn  under the guidance of Sir Rajesh. I started working on various projects led by Asha which gave me a lot of experience and confidence. I was privileged to win a scholarship to study art  in India through VAST Bhutan. Unfortunately, due to my medical conditions, I was unable to complete my course. At present, I am volunteering at VAST Bhutan and working on some projects under the guidance of Asha Kama. I enjoy doing contemporary art as I am able to express myself without  restrictions unlike other traditional forms of art.
