WOLFSON College has taken on a central Asian theme with the installation of a new exhibition of Mongolian art.
The Spirit of Mongolia exhibition features the work of three artists from the vast country and aims to bring its colour and splendour to Oxford.
The works on display have been inspired by Mongolia’s vast steppe, blue sky, nomadic culture and a contemporary interpretation of Buddhist art.
Artist Soyolmaa Davaakhuu was the 2008 recipient of the female artist of the year prize in Mongolia and is well known for bringing the clarity and precision of traditional Buddhist art to a contemporary audience.
She is joined by Sukbaatar Davaakhuu an award-winning calligrapher and artist.
His works depict symbolic animals which represent human emotions and modes of expression, accompanied by lines of calligraphic writing of poems in Mongolian script.
The third artist, Davaanyam Tsedendamba, depicts nomadic culture and the unspoiled nature of Mongolia.
The exhibition runs until Friday, January 29 and is open daily from 10am until 7pm at the college in Linton Road.
Visitors are advised to ring the college lodge on 01865 274100 before attending.
