CONCEPT OF ARTWORK
The core of my art stems from the Tibetan culture of Kangrinboqe. The skull elements are the symbol of the patron gods in Tibetan culture. To me, they are spirits, representing every life entity and life cell from the universe. The tiger is densely covered with brightly coloured skulls in order to convey the natural law of coexistence between us and the tiger, human and nature.
