I had done this painting of the Goddess of Longevity known as Tsheringma after having the fortune of beholding it at the magnificent temples of the five sisters respectively. It is said they flew in from Tibet and became guardian deities of the Dharma. Each sister is represented by an animal; the doe, the dragon, the horse and the tiger. I was more drawn to the longevity deity, the one depicted in my painting riding a snow lion which portrays power and strength, fearlessness and joy. Painted in a shade of gold, the metal element which signifies endurance and persistence through eons of time, she glows in its aura. Each stroke, for me, is a manifestation of my admiration to femininity, the protection and heavenly emanation she exhibits and my reverence to the sacred goddess.
Dimension: 150×150 cm
About the Artist
Art allows people to look beyond their capabilities and explore the creativity within.
From when I was very young, I was led to painting by my family who always had an appreciation for art. They had a huge impact on my journey to express my thoughts through art. My sketchbook and my pencil were and still are my best friends which I still take everywhere I go.
I like challenging myself to be creative in every and any way possible so that I can be better than I was. Art truly makes me focus on things that are important to me. I do not limit myself to one medium, style or concept, once I even drew with an eyebrow pencil!
After joining VAST Bhutan, in search of my own potential, I was able to get out of my comfort zone. The varieties of styles and techniques used by the senior and fellow members amazed and enabled me to understand the value of color, lines and textures. The use of all of my new learnings allows me to improve what I love to do the most- make art. I feel a sense of joy and pride when people appreciate my work, so I always strive to do justice to the art I make by not being complacent.
I am so blessed with the opportunity to study art at BeaconHouse National University, Lahore, Pakistan on a scholarship through VAST Bhutan.
My inspiration comes from the people I meet and the places I visit.
Born 1998, from Trashigang
