This week’s Inspirational Portfolio comes from Mongolia, and the great painter Zayasaikhan Sambuu aka Zaya. His vivid coloring and amazing lines and strong structure can become a daily inspirational capsule.
Zayasaikhan Sambuu was born in Mongolia. He paints the styles and themes of Mongolian traditional painting with contemporary Asian art in “a bridge between old and new art.” Scenes of ancient daily life, echoes of his nomadic, Central Asian roots, themes of Tibetan spirituality and traditional Japanese techniques all go into the unique mix and brings to his canvases. Using a technique that fuses watercolors, gouache, brush, and mixed media, he works with a warm yet somewhat dark palette.
Many of Zayas’ paintings depict noble or royal Mongolian women, all with costumes and hair styles drawn from traditional fashion designs of Mongolian nomadic aristocracy. These figures are often accompanied by wild animals such as snow leopards or wolves . View more of his amazing paintings to www.art-zaya.com
