the museum of contemporary tibetan art


Welcome to the website of the Museum of Contemporary Tibetan Art. In the museum, I will show you my artworks and that of other Tibetan artists that are a combination of authentic Tibetan techniques and contemporary art.

This unique museum is located in the centre of Emmen, Drenthe, where the zoo used to be and is now called “Rensenpark”.

By visiting the museum, I will take you into a world of contemporary Tibetan art and spirituality.

I hope to welcome you and my team to this world’s only museum of contemporary Tibetan art soon.

"The aim of Art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance" Aristotle "To represent the inward significance of things; the freedom and the powers of Universe, enhancing and cherishing this way, not only the Tibetan Contemporary Art rooted to Tibet, but reflecting adjustment of Tibetan Art and culture in the West too."
