Artist’s Talk: Tsherin Sherpa

Tibetan artist Tsherin Sherpa, whose works are featured in Boundless: Contemporary Tibetan Artists at Home and Abroad, explores themes of displacement and identity as he recounts his artistic journey. Trained as a traditional Tibetan thangka painter, Sherpa is now an artist whose work brings together both sacred and profane or, in his words, “the icon and the ordinary.”

Sherpa has exhibited his work throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, including at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
