Inspired by Buddhism, Uygen and Tashi are often painting motives in the spiritual environment. The young nun, in her Buddhist robe with typical red colours, captures the viewer’s attention with her clear, knowing glance. Through her partly concealed face she radiates something mysterious. Due to the frame-in-frame technique, the painting appears three-dimensional.

The Artist

The name TWINZ stands for the identical twins Uygen Samdrup and Tashi Dendrup.

Both are artistically very talented. First, they studied music before they rediscovered their old love – painting.  Particularly, Rembrandt moved them to switch to the Academy of Fine Arts in India. Since 2014 both try to live from painting and they are regarded as “one” of the greatest talents in Bhutan. Besides painting, they also illustrate children’s books.

The very special thing about the twins is that they paint some of their artworks together or they refine them mutually.
