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.

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.
