Widely regarded as ‘one’ of the most talented contemporary painters in their home country, identical twin brothers Tashi Dendup and Ugyen Samdrup live and work at 2300m above sea level in Thimphu, the capital of the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. Since 2014, going by the artist name TWINZ, they have been following their own distinctive professional path: they blend contemporary painting with ancient Buddhist and Shamanistic traditions and artistic expression. What makes them unique apart from their impressive art is that they work together on their paintings. They are ‘two bodies with one soul’. Always inseparable.

YAB-YUM, (“father-mother”), in Buddhist art of Bhutan, is the representation of the male deity in a sexual embrace with his female consort. The pose is generally understood to represent the mystical union of the active force and compassion with wisdom - a fusion necessary to overcome the false duality of the world of appearances in the striving toward spiritual Enlightenment.
