Nepalese artist Oman Gauchan paints the breathtakingly beautiful landscapes of Thakola region in the Himalayas, where his family have lived for generations. As a young man he was trained by his father (who also served in the British Army as a Gurkha) in the traditional style of Nepalese painting and then went on to complete his studies at art school in Nepal. Oman now lives in Colchester and works as a web designer. He says, "My inspirations comes from my country and the breathtaking view of the mighty Himalayas. These inspirations helps me to portray my imaginations and creativity to create a fine art." Oman also shows at the Ssyambhu gallery in Nepal.
