Starting the painting career in 1992, Pasang, a Thangka painter and inheritor of intangible cultural heritage, never stopped painting in the past 25 years. From dawn to sunset, he devotes himself to the painting. Pasang is a Thangka painter and inheritor of intangible cultural heritage, and he is also the owner of a Thangka shop at the Barkor Street in Lhasa, capital city of Tibet Autonomous Region. Light of the energy-saving lamp on the top, like the sunshine, illuminates the house and lights up the Thangka paintings hanging on the wall. (Photo/ China Tibet News)

Pasang’s Barkor Traditional Thangka Studio lies in the compartment beside the shop. Students sitting in every corner of the room are either drafting or coloring. Currently, there are 20 students learning here. (Photo/ China Tibet News)

Pasang has been fascinated with the Buddhist figures and bright colors of Thangka since his childhood. In 1992, he came to Tibet University and became a student of Tenpa Redan, a master of Thangka painting. He started learning the basic painting skills and studied there for five years.
