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.
