The Sonoma Valley Museum of Art (SVMA) is pleased to announce the opening of 'Tsherin Sherpa: Different Worlds', running January 20 through April 28, 2024.
'Tsherin Sherpa: Different Worlds' presents the captivating artworks of Tsherin Sherpa, a globally renowned contemporary artist. Born in Kathmandu, Nepal, Tsherin Sherpa emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1998. The artist’s work is grounded in his personal experiences within the Himalayan Diaspora and his rigorous training as a Thangka painter (traditional Buddhist art).
Upon relocating to the United States, Sherpa encountered new artistic influences, which led him to develop a distinctive artistic practice that seamlessly blends his traditional upbringing with contemporary perspectives.
