BANGKOK ART BIENNALE: Mongolian artist Baatarzorig Batjargal is the first Mongolian artist invited to this Biennale

Baatarzorig Batjargal is taking part of Bangkok Art Biennale 2020

 

Born in 1983, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, artist Baatarzorig Batjargal lives and works in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia and is married to artist Nomin Bold.

 

The preservation of Mongolia’s cultural heritage that is being lost through historical transformations is central to Baatarzorig Batjargal’s multi-disciplinary work. Mongolia has long experienced sustainable living and self-sufficiency being removed from the lures of capitalism by geographical remoteness and nomadic farming culture. Batjargal brings attention to his heritage through his work that merges traditional painting techniques, such as Mongol Zurag, with contemporary styles. This is where mythological and spiritual world of Mongolia is confronted with modern symbols of development.

 

Batjargal studied Fine Arts at the Mongolian University of Arts and Culture in Ulaanbaatar where he resides. His had solo exhibitions in London at Jack Bell Gallery, and his group exhibitions include Contemporary Art of Mongolia (Hong Kong, 2019) and Asia Pacific Triennale at Queensland (Australia, 2018).
