Dance of the Drum

Artist: Pema Tshering
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Year: 2013
Size: 92 x 121 cm
Number: 0011

In Pema Tshering’s painting “Dance of the Drum” he combined aesthetics with dynamics. The stylized dancer appears to move his body in ecstasy to the rhythm of the drumbeats. This impression is often obtained in real dances. Nevertheless, the picture seems to be austere, maybe even technical, with its perfectly clear contours and the regular pattern on the background. This contrast gives Pema’s work a particular enthralling attraction.

The Artist

Pema Tshering

In 1998 the artistic career of Pema Tshering began. At the age of 13 he joined VAST, the first and only association that promotes modern art. Along with Asha Kama, Bhutan’s “father” of contemporary art, he developed the new art genre in Bhutan.

He likes to experiment with both the motifs as well as with the media he uses. With his artworks, he has participated in several international exhibitions and won various prizes.

Today, Pema is one of the most popular artists, with his own gallery. His paintings even adorn the rooms of the royal family. In addition to his vocation as a painter, he is also active as a designer.
