Tsherin Sherpa: Different Worlds
11:00 AM
Sonoma Valley Museum of Art

Hours: 11am-5pm Wednesday thru Sunday

Tsherin Sherpa: Different Worlds presents the captivating artworks of Tsherin Sherpa, a globally renowned contemporary artist. Born in Kathmandu, Nepal, Tsherin Sherpa emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1998. The artist’s work is grounded in his personal experiences within the Himalayan Diaspora and his rigorous training as a thangka painter (traditional Buddhist art).

Upon relocating to the United States, Sherpa encountered new artistic influences, which led him to develop a distinctive artistic practice that seamlessly blends his traditional upbringing with contemporary perspectives.

Tsherin Sherpa
Tsherin Sherpa explores the intersections of cultural heritage, personal experiences, and global influences through his art, creating a visual language that resonates with audiences worldwide. Sherpa has exhibited across the United States, Europe, and Asia—including representing Nepal in its inaugural participation at the Venice Biennale in 2022. He has also been part of Yokohama Triennale (2020); Yinchuan Biennale (2018); Kathmandu Triennale (2017); Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Brisbane (2015-16); and Dhaka Art Summit (2014). In 2023, Tsherin Sherpa was honored with the Asia Arts Gamer Changer Award by the Asia Society for his significant contribution to contemporary art.
