“Mongolia is a wonderful country with virgin lands and endless plateaus. I’ve travelled throughout my country for many years, and the beauty of its nature is in my memory forever.
I describe these memories through my art. It may sound strange that someone could try to describe space in the air (it’s about perspective), movement in the air (it’s about horizons in nature), and the shining of the sun (it’s about light, etc.), however, it is my aim to describe these things through my art.”
Amgalan graduated from the State College of Music and Dance in Mongolia, majoring in painting. He graduated from the I.E. Repin Institute of Architecture, Sculpture, and Paintings at the Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Russia.
