Tulku Jamyang Gyatso (TJ), born 1977, is a contemporary Tibetan artist residing in his home country of Nepal. He uses the unique medium of incense and rice paper to create Tibetan themed art. Since childhood, TJ was trained in traditional Tibetan art from his father Ugen Dorjee, a renowned thangka painter. TJ was also taught traditional Tibetan calligraphy while living in a Buddhist monastery as a monk. Recognized as a reincarnated Tulku (Tibetan Buddhist master), TJ has unique life experiences of intensive monastic Buddhist training and international travels as a Buddhist teacher. His dedication to spirituality and Tibetan Buddhism is clearly expressed in all of his work. His art is influenced by his brother Tsering Sherpa, a fellow contemporary Tibetan artist. He finds further artistic inspiration from the works of Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, and Gerhard Richter.
