About Sonam Wangchuk

During my winter vacation in 2018, I joined VAST Bhutan. My interest in art grew when I heard about a platform near Tarayana Park where you could learn art.  I started my journey of a thousand steps with a single colour which was white, appearing to be full of laughter and smiles. The members of VAST Bhutan were kind to me with their pure heart and soul. The paintings hanging on the walls were mind blowing which made me more interested. The merging of colours on canvas attracted me the most and the brush strokes made me impatient to start one of my very own. That’s when I started sketching. I took my sketchbook everywhere.  I was not good at painting but learning alongside my friends from the senior artists was worth it. I loved the contemporary art done by Asha Kama and Sir Rajesh and got the wonderful opportunity to learn from them, the histories and the techniques of art. I assisted on projects with Asha and learned  a lot from him. The projects that I took part in benefitted me immensely in improving my brushstrokes and color mixing techniques. I am so glad to have met such amazing people who taught me values of life. The more I painted, the more I was able to recognize the color palettes easily which has brought me the confidence to paint on a big canvas without any hesitation. I love art, the process of putting your heart and soul on a canvas is worth every effort.  

I am more interested in learning the techniques of traditional and digital art.
