SKY BURIAL – Heesco
A new exhibition of paintings and installation by Mongolian-born artist Heesco explores the disparity between spirituality and reality as a raw emotional visual response and reflection on experiences gathered from his annual trips back to his birthplace.
Mongolia is a land of extremes, surrounded by wild natural beauty, soaked in rich ancient cultures and traditions, but also plagued with modern day problems, rampant corruption, ever growing gap between rich and poor, and the capital Ulaanbaatar is both the coldest and the most polluted in the world.
A limited edition art print will be produced as part of the exhibition with proceeds going towards supporting Lantuun Dohio (www.lantuundohio.org)
Lantuun Dohio is an NGO in Mongolia with a mission to eradicate human trafficking and protecting children from violence, neglect, abuse and exploitation in Mongolia and around the world.
