The “Black Head Dancer” is a substantial part of religious festivals, like Tshechus. It is performed by 21 dancers who are dressed in splendid and colourful costumes, wearing a black hat. The dancers beat their drums and rotate their bodies around their own axis. This could be depicted in an impressive way. On three paintings of this series Pema reflects almost photographically colours, shapes and dynamics from the bird’s eye view.

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.
