CHIMEDDORJ SHAGDARJAVIN Chimeddorj Shagdarjavin (b. 1954) was raised in Mongolia within a culture of nomadic horsemen. He depicts the body language of horses through sensitive and varied use of spare strokes of ink and modernist applications of oil paint. Deep blue color plays an important role in his work, partly expressing the depth of space felt on the Mongolian steppe. Internationally collected, some consider him the world’s leading contemporary painter of horses. His works are part of the permanent collections of eight museums in Europe as well in as Korea and Mongolia.
