I did not intend to do this painting at first. There was an extra canvas lying around and I got the opportunity to paint it. I then painted a scenery of a forest. I decided to add a golden light (specifically known as ‘Komorebi’ in Japanese), which is an expression for sunlight as it filters through the trees. I have also included a rock in the shape of a skull. The whole painting is dark and cool at first glance but the main subject is the light (which is warm). I painted this to portray a symbol of hope and the beauty of light. The skull symbolizes death and the rock symbolizes nature, which shows how human beings are connected to nature.
Title: Golden Light
Dimension: 250×150 cm
About the Artist
As far as I can remember, I was interested in doing art from Class Three but I only started studying about art when I joined VAST Bhutan in 2018. I have learned to create art in various ways now and I have been exposed to a lot of mediums. I don’t have a specific favorite but I mostly use pencil, acrylic and oil. I love watching Anime and that is where I got my encouragement and fondness towards art. The landscapes portrayed in Anime films are immaculate and I want to create something similar. I get inspired by the life and work of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
