Kesang Lamdark’s sculptures, plastic thangkas and lightboxes are evidence of the artist’s displaced and multicultural upbringing. Wherever he has lived, Lamdark has always felt like an outsider. His search for an appropriate cultural space ultimately turned inwards and he eventually came to understand and reconnect with his Tibetan heritage while living in the West. Lamdark’s Tibetan-Western identity lies in his ability to understand and find a balance between both cultures. Combining unusual materials, from hair to plastic, beer cans to nail polish, Lamdark’s life and works bring together the unfamiliar and revel in recycling everyday objects into works of art.

Born in 1963 in Dharamsala, India, Lamdark grew up in Switzerland where he apprenticed and worked as an interior architect. He went on to study at Parsons New School for Design in New York City, obtaining an MA in Visual Art at Columbia University. He currently lives and works in Switzerland.

Lamdark has successfully participated in numerous solo and group shows around the world. In 2012 he participated in the vibrant annual Dharamsala Interantional Artists’ Workshop and in 2013 he complete a residency at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, SUNY New Paltz. Lamdark’s works are held in various private and public collections in Europe, Australia and the USA.
