About Tsultrim Tenzin:

Tsultrim Tenzin was born in Kathmandu, Nepal and is the first artist in his family. Tsultrim displayed a deep interest in art at an early age and it was in New York City where he cultivated his talent. Tsultrim studied classical drawing and painting at the prestigious academy Grand Central Atelier under the renowned artist Jacob Collins. He creates paintings that he finds beautiful through form, tone, and color as his heroes such as Rembrandt and Velazquez once did. He uses a synthesis of sorts, mixing the masterful language of the past with society as it is today, reminiscent of the Naturalists such as Bastien Lepage and George Clausen. Tsultrim's oil paintings are an exploration of the world and the people around him. The Tibetan culture is a very personal theme that the artist continually finds himself exploring. Tsultrim continually expresses one of his life's mission of creating timeless paintings that reflect the strength and beauty of the Tibetan people and culture.
