Profile/CV

Tashi Khan, Artist/ Interior designer 
I was born into a family where art and culture were important and had been for generations. I imbibed an early appreciation of the arts from our immediate environment from as far back as I can remember. Poets and artists came and stayed for long periods doing family portraits. I remember watching spellbound as they worked with brush, knife and pallet. My parents recognised my interest and inclination and encouraged me to paint. I have not looked back since. 
In time people around me began to recognise my special gift. At first the recognition was locally confined to school and college fetes, functions and exhibitions. I studied fine arts at university. During the course of one of the college exhibitions my entire work was sold out, much to the chagrin of my art teacher, who did not think I was very talented. He was very critical of my work and would not do any corrections, but thanks to the external examiner, I passed with distinction. 
I painted all the time as a young girl but friends and family used to take my paintings to display in their drawing rooms, so except me, every one else had my work. 
I have dabbled in other fields such as fashion designing, campaigns for fashion shows, writing and designing for fashion magazines. Alternatively I had been working for international expositions, exhibitions and conferences in India which I continued to do when I came to the UK. I also ran my own advertising agency in India. 
Then the turning point in my life was that I got married and I arrived in this country. I had two lovely kids and my life became an incessant whirl of school schedules and kids activities. However, I was baffled with all the work and responsibilities because I had to adapt to the British lifestyle which I was not used to (coming from a family background where servants used to do everything). 
However I continued my art work between my hectic schedules, until I had a big break painting life size figures for a trendy restaurant, which when finished was covered by the press.I was also interviewed by one of the Asian TV Channels. 
I had decorated my house and the unusual decor caught people' s eye and merited another newspaper article and had a student from Cambridge University include the outside of my house (because of its unusual design) in his project. 
I have been doing all sorts of art work for people but that was what they wanted me to do not what I actually wanted to create - that s when I decided to venture out to do an individual show. I also had an article in the newspaper for the design of my front wall & the problems I was facing from the council. 
I did participate in a show in Olympia where I was commisioned to do art work for individuals, I have just finished an assignment while working for my upcoming exhibition, unfortunatelely I fractured my ankle while going for work which slowed down my targets but I continued to paint portraits, caricatures, murals for homes, until it dawned on me that it was time to do another exhibition. 
So please do come and view my work as your interest and opinions would very much be welcomed.

About Tashi statementv( third person)
Tashi's work is a dialogue in contemporary times, a narrative that resonates a sense of precariousness that has come to signify our times. If anything, it challenges the sense of the immovable, the permanent. It embraces vulnerability & fragility. The focus shifts from the changes that are observable & felt to those that are often unacknowledged & immutable, a sense that the beliefs & certainties that defined our world have changed irrevocably.
Yet it is not a lament. It is an invitation to look at the poignant or the momentous & seek ordinary pleasures. To honour transience, reflecting on the everyday moments that it depicts, to look remember & to serve as a reminder that new forms always emerge & refresh what seems momentary or constant.
