G.Dunburee: Mongolian color is bright and flamboyant

By B.Tungalag

 Prized Union of Mongolian Artists member and Art Merit Worker G.Dunburee unveiled his exhibition “Time Mood” at the exhibition hall of the Union of Mongolian Artists on November 22.  It will be on view through November 28.

Artworks by G.Dunburee created from 1960 to now are displayed in the exhibition, including “Ikh khuree” and “Niislel khuree”, a series of paintings that show the history of Ulaanbaatar. Here is a brief interview with artist G.Dunburee.

-How many exhibitions have you had?

-I do not exhibit my work every year, but I always participate in foreign and domestic exhibitions. It has been around 50 years since I felt in love with fine arts in 1960.  “Time Mood” is my 16th exhibition.

-Do you imagine the title of your artwork or work from what you’re feeling when you create your artwork?

 -I usually create my works of art under the theme of history and modern situations. I imagine Mongolian life, people and customs inside of my heart and create. I’ve painted various paintings, such as portraits, nature, agriculture, and industry. Recently, I have been studying history and treatises. Within this I displayed the exhibition.

-Color in your paintings seemed apart from reality. For example green reindeer?

-Color is limitless and unrepeated. Natural wild animals have a color adapted in nature. For me, I am trying to focus on traditional color of Mongolian traditional painting. Traditional color of Mongolian traditional painting is flamboyant. Mongolians mind is so clear and costumes also sharp. Nature and environment also have bright color.
