Gyatso Chuteng is a New York based Tibetan artist and an interior architect. Born and raised in Nepal, he moved to the United States in 2005. After earning a degree in Interior Architecture from University of California, Berkeley in 2010, he worked at an interior design firm in San Francisco for several years before moving to New York in 2014. Besides art history, color theories and other art related courses during his school, Gyatso took several drawing and painting classes to help broaden his knowledge and techniques. He currently works part-time at one of the reputed interior design firms in New York while fully dedicating half of his time on his artwork.
His work has been shown in group exhibitions most recent being “Art for Tibet, NY 2017” and “Imago Mundi, Italy 2013”. He has created and donated pieces for non-profit organizations to raise funds and to create awareness on Tibetan issues but he works mostly on individual commissions. His works are very indicative of his design and architecture background where the color, scale, proportion and overall aesthetics plays a very important role.
Currently he is working on a series inspired by the landscape of one of the world’s largest monastic valley in Tibet, known as “Larung-Gar”, the valley that has a profound influence on him and that speaks to him as “enchanting, mystical, organized chaos, pure..….” and he is working towards a solo exhibition for summer/fall 2018.
