Mongolian artist Soyolmaa Davaakhuu will discuss her work with art historian Uranchimeg Tsultem. Soyolmaa Davaakhuu's art is based on her profound interest and practice of Buddhism. She is one of very few artists in Mongolia who aim to find new modernist style of expression of Buddhist images, motifs and symbols. She studied Buddhism and with the approval of her guru, she is able to create new forms and iconographies for Buddhist deities and their manifestations. Works by the artist will be on display. Her art was shown in UK, USA, Canada, South Korea, Vietnam, and Mongolia. The exhibition opening will include the artist's talk.
