Chorten and prayer flags characterise the image of Bhutan. Whether in the cities or in the countryside, these Buddhist symbols with their typical colours can be seen almost everywhere. This time the artist has excluded monks. Perhaps they have just been passed by or are still on the way. Anyway, this place invites you to linger.

The Artist

The Bishwas are a family of artists. Sukbir is well known in Bhutan. He is one of the very first contemporary painters.

Many years ago, he gave up a secure job in the administration and became an artist. He himself says that he is art addicted and would prefer to paint from dawn to dusk. But his gallery, one of the first in Bhutan, also requires his presence.

He also introduced his son, Salil Bishwa, to modern art and taught him how to paint. In order to avoid confusion, Sukbir signs his paintings with S. Bishwa I.
