Nomin Bold

Nomin Bold was born in 1982 in Ulaanbaatar. In 2005, she graduated in Mongolian traditional painting (zurag) from the School of Fine Arts of the Mongolian University of Arts and Culture. She has now become well known around the world for her extremely thin brush painting and for her way to represent modern themes with Mongolian traditional painting techniques. While Buddhist imagery still haunts a part of her inspiration, she boldly ventures into raising awareness of the cultural identity crisis that meets Mongolian society without ignoring each of its evils. She also pinpoints the condition of Mongolian women in a harsh world in which very subtly they actually pull the strings.

“Mrs Mongol “

2011 Acrylic on canvas 100x80cm

In this representation of today’s Mongolian woman, one can see some satirical views as she is tempted by numerous appealing things although clad in her Mongolian traditional dress (Deel) with Louis Vuitton design and at a time when, no so long ago, she was tending her sheep. In fact, the Artist wishes to express her wish to see Mongolian culture and traditions be embraced by the young generation, in other words to see the young generation remain genuine Mongols and not give in to the enticing consumer society nor to the forces of globalization.
