4. Nyandak


I believe to be an artist, one should find one's own mode of expression integrated deeply in one's self. So I feel my works though devoid of certain innovation, are genuine and expressive. The artistic environment in Tibet hasn't yet had the space and scope for innovation that other regions enjoy. But strong individualism has thrived without conscious innovation.

Largely my themes share similarity with other artists in certain treatment. Though not so sociable a person, I am keen at observing social phenomena; subjectively. I can't say I am critical, political, or any other things. But I should say that I am sensitive and artful in depicting my themes. And that feels like tasting a strange food without commenting about it but bodily expressing something about the taste.
