Mongolia: Then and Now
An Exhibit of Paintings by Dasher Ayush

On display through December 2014


Four Warriors by Dasher Ayush

 

Born in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, Dasher Ayush grew up in the beautiful and wild Mongolian countryside surrounded by broad steppes, high mountain ranges and extensive rivers.  His grandfather was an exceptionally talented artist who taught Dasher how to jewel and paint as well as to revere the landscape and man’s close connection to the earth and all living things. Dasher’s paintings are about peace, freedom, and nature, and they show a delicate attention to detail and fine control of the brush. Painting in the traditional style, Dasher creates images of Mongol warriors on horseback and nomadic men herding sheep.  In contrast, his portraits of women are soft, dreamy and beautiful.
