TABOO by B.Lkhamjav
What the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here.
(Radiohead – Greep)
Artist B.Lhamjav was born in 1941. Without formal education in art and any knowledge of western originated modern styles, he started producing his works, creating his very own technique, incorporating surrealist, expressionist and symbolic elements, describing ancient legend and myth, human and nature, since 1953.
As western modern art was taboo during that time, artist would paint in the night at home and keep his works hiding from others. His long hair and unusual attitude caused problems for his career, life and family members. He spent 62 years, not being able to show his works to others and live as he wished.
