Event Detail

Impressions of Happiness is a celebration of Bhutan's rich culture, centered around the theme of happiness.

For the artists featured in this exhibition, the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon is a great source of inspiration. After all, Bhutan evokes a land where myths and legends come alive--a place where one can find the true essence of peace and happiness. The country's picturesque sights spark the artists' creativity, enabling them to produce beautiful works of art that uplift the hearts of the beholder.

Different sides of multi-faceted Bhutan are depicted in the exhibit. The image of the Buddha appears in many works, showing the significance of religion in the Bhutanese way of life. Dzongs stand majestic, nestled in the lush and verdant landscape. Black-necked cranes fly freely, symbols of longevity. Human figures are portrayed in colourful expressions of joyful bliss.

Ultimately, Impressions of Happiness invites viewers to reflect on the nature of happiness and to rejoice in beauty.

Part proceeds from the sale of the artworks is in aid of underprivileged young artists of the International Young Artists Exchange (IYAE) fund and VAST studio, Bhutan.
The International Young Artists Exchange (IYAE), an initiative by The Old Parliament House Limited, was launched on 20 June 2012. IYAE creates opportunities for young talents from financially disadvantaged backgrounds to come to Singapore for a learning and exchange experience. IYAE also funds young local talents from financially disadvantaged backgrounds to travel abroad for performances and exchange programmes.
Voluntary Artists’ Studio, Thimphu, popularly known as VAST was set up in 1998 by a group of professional artists as a non-profitable and non-governmental organization (NGO). This informal organization was set up with the sole aim of providing an opportunity to the Bhutanese youth to participate and develop their potential talents as well as share social responsibilities through artistic explorations and other socially useful and productive work.
