VOA Interviews: Sonam Dolma, Contemporary Visual Artist
Known for her abstract paintings and sculptural installations, Sonam Dolma is possibly the only Tibetan female contemporary artist of her generation. She was born in Tibet, grew up in India and immigrated to Switzerland in 1973 at the age of 19. She says that abstraction of form allows her to experiment with her inner feelings and worldviews, and enables her to express them more easily. Sonam Dolma’s works have been exhibited at galleries in Europe and the United States.
