As in other artworks, the artist uses the drip painting technique which reminds one of Jackson Pollock. With this technique, he paints the theme of “Five Elements”. From left to right you see five lines starting with blue, which symbolise the sky. It is followed by white for clouds, red for fire, green for water and yellow for earth. This colour arrangement is also found in prayer flags. From a small, twisted opening Buddha seems to observe the viewer.

The Artist

Salil Bishwa is a young artist to whom painting was placed in the cradle. He learned how to paint from his father, Sukbir Bishwa, who emerged as one of the first contemporary artists.

So that there is no confusion with their names, Salil signs his paintings with S. Bishwa II. Meanwhile he has developed his own style and received the second prize at an international art competition. In the capital Thimphu he runs his own gallery, where he exhibits also paintings from other artists.

Salil is versatile and well skilled. Besides painting he plays guitar in a rock band in Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan.
