Lot Details

"Herdsman Family"(2010) is a fantastic oil on canvas painting by Dawa Zhaxi (Tibet, B. 1979). This large work depicts a local herdsman, milking and tending to their cattle. The celebration of life and nature is perfectly captured by Dawa in his brushstroke, colorful palette, use of light and negative space in this intense composition. His style of nearly abstracting his figures, breaking them down based to strokes of color and form is singular in his 1980's generation of Tibetan painters working today.

Note: Dimensions listed here "Hersman's Family" are for the painting itself. This painting is professionally framed to larger dimensions measuring 27.95 x 32.67 inches (71cm x 83 cm). The painting is in perfect condition. Dawa Zhaxi is of the most exciting and relevant emerging artists from South Asia painting and exhibiting on the international art scene. His works are highly sought after in his native country and throughout Asia and South-Asia. The artist lives and works in Tibet.
