Mongolian fine art masterpieces on display

By B.Tungalag

A painting exhibition at the Association of Traditional Painting is on display at the Exhibition Hall of the Union of Mongolian Artists from July 23 through August 1. The Association of Traditional Painting was established by graduates of the Traditional Painting Department at the Fine Art Institute in 2002. The association has an annual art exhibition. About 50 artworks by 24 artists from the Association of Traditional painting are on display this year. Each  piece of art captures the artists’ inner world and skilled sense of color harmony, and all exhibit modern and new ideas. Undesnii Shuudan daily newspaper featured the traditional artist, O.Zolbootuguldur, whose painting “Bird Catcher” is included in the exhibition.

-Could you introduce yourself, please?

-I am O.Zolbootuguldur. I graduated from the traditional painting class at the Fine Art Institute in 2010. After graduating school, I studied in Poland for two years. Then I came back to my homeland and began working on my art.

-Can you tell us about your artwork displayed in the exhibition?

-I displayed a painting named “Bird Catcher”. For the creation of the title, I didn’t plan it before drawing. I found the name when I was painting. I do not use traditional painting techniques even though I graduated from the traditional painting class. Because traditional painting technique seems, to me, so constricted, however it is a skill required by artists. I use techniques and effects which interest me and  create. I paint with abstraction.

-Where did you get the ideas for your paintings?

-I make a sketch and outline when ideas come into my mind. I continue that idea and paint. Commonly, a creation depends on the sense and feeling of that moment.

-What do you want to give to people through “Bird Catcher”?

-Some paintings are meant to educate. My painting does not have such a meaning. I described a feeling that came from my heart. I did not paint for someone to understand something from my artwork. That is why people understand it differently, depending on what they see or feel.
