In most pictures Buddha is presented simply in golden colours. Here it is different. With the vividly coloured Buddha, the artists wanted to move Buddhism into the centre of life. They make clear that Buddha is part of their everyday life, like Buddhist monks who are present on the streets and markets as well as in cafes and other public places.

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.
