An image of the family life


2014 Oil on canvas 100x100cm

Actually this is Tuvshoo's family. She got inspired by the things each one in the family plays with. Husband always plays war-type computer games, so he is painted wearing military, landing force uniform. Tuvshoo likes to play jigsaw puzzle games, so she is dressed in a puzzle pattern-like dress. Her son loves to play Lego and constructing things. So he got a Lego type T-shirt. Her daughter was very young at that time. She was just one year old at the time of the painting. She had a doll and it symbolized her future that she would become a mother one day.
