-AVINTH FILM BERLIN PRESENTS A TOBIAS WULFF FILM 'ZURAG'-ZURAG Movie by Tobias Wulff

Otgonbayar Ershuu was born 18th January 1981 in Ulaanbaatar/Mongolia. His great talent for drawing and painting was recognized early and by the age of 15 he had his first solo exhibition. From 1998 to 2001 OTGO studied in Utaanbaatar traditional Mongolian painting. After graduation, he participated as a painter and restorer on several research trips to historical sites in Mongolia. In the Buddhist-Lamaist monasteries he studied different techniques, the iconography of the miniature painting as well as their spiritual backgrounds.

Since 2005 he lives and works in Berlin. 2007-2010 he studied at the Institute for Art in Context, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Arts in Berlin and graduated in 2010 as Master of Arts. His international exhibitions began in 2001.

OTGO’S first major group of works are the Thangkas, i.e. Miniature paintings whose contents are derived from the gods worlds of Shamanism, Buddhism and Tengriasm, which applies the artist without a sketch directly onto a specially primed canvas. The primer of screens consists of a mixture of carbon black, chalk and milk vodka or brandy. Pigments from minerals or plants are added. Finally, the mixture is bound with glue from Yakskin and applied to both sides of the canvas. Using the special technique developed by OTGO and the state of highest concentration caused about 600 Thangkas. Striking is the mostly eroticized representation of the subjects. A guiding principle of the Mongolian belief is to achieve the “All - unit” by overcoming all of the real world phenomenon.

A second working group consists of approximately 600 pages of comic-like illustrations of the “Secret History of the Mongols” which was written about 800 years ago. It is the oldest and most important literary works of the Mongols, myth, epic and history at the same time. With its miniature illustrations OTGO wanted to do this important work easier to read for all ages of its culture.

Even as a child I dreamed of colorful, flowers and romping people of lightness and lightheartedness of paradise.” (OTGO)

His third and most recent group of works, starting with the large-scale painting “HUN” (2010-2012), we could entitle as “Paradise Paintings.” “HUN” is an all-over painting of approximately 12000 people and animals interwoven and designed to a condensed panorama-like, vibrant microcosm. Humans and animals are drawn as miniaturelike, individually elements, merge in the picture, however, in a colorful motion-suggestive overall composition similar to a mirror image of the oriented harmony Mongolian culture.

The images presented in Mannheim are showing flying, floating, running humans and animals, isolated and compacted to groups involved in a cosmos of coloristically concise scene set in natural elements. Everything is in motion, change, transformation. OTGOS paintings based on a picturesque expressive language give us an idea of the harmony between man and nature by civilization partially untouched spaces and a feeling of areas of an earthly paradise, which is in some ways consistent with our Western idea of a total harmony or ‘Ganzheit’ of the world.

Ershuu Otgonbayar:
a Mongolian painter, but an artist of the world

In 2010, Otgo founded Zurag gallery in downtown Berlin, which seems to have made its way through the rich contemporary art scene of the German capital. The young Mongolian artist is starting to be famous, but not only in Germany, galleries from countries like France and Sweden started to exhibit him lately.
 
Painting Thangkas, miniatures and graphic novels, we could qualify the work of Otgonbayar substantive and “border braking” like the critics would say. With the “Secret history of the Mongols” represented in a 600 pages and 3000 drawings book or with the acrylic painting “HUN”: a 6 by 2 meters canvas picturing a scene where 11,196 humans and animals are sharing the space (currently exhibited at Tsagaandarium), Otgo not only breaks records but transmits to the public a Mongolian essence. Chuhal.mn benefited from his presence in Mongolia to interview him about his life as a painter between Berlin and Ulaanbaatar.

Red Ger gallery will exhibit Otgonbayar’s paintings from the 17th to the 25thof October. RED GER art gallery at KHAN BANK, Seoul Street-25.
 

What is the difference between creating in Mongolia and in Germany?
When I am in Mongolia, I am home. It is the motherland and for various reasons the creative process here is very good. However, in Germany I have the gallery to manage and a lot of business related work to do besides painting. It is much more stressful and tiring. In order to focus on my work I need to turn off my phone for example. I need to isolate myself from Berlin’s busy life. On the contrary, In Ulaanbaatar, I feel very relaxed. Back there it is difficult to compel with the work at the gallery and the freedom of the artist.

How do you manage your gallery, Zurag, in Germany? What is your vision?
My main goal with the gallery is to promote Mongolian artists in Germany and by extension in the world. I also like to invite foreign artists. In two years I organized 20 exhibitions with artists from Germany, Turkey, Peru etc. My philosophy is not to focus on nationality but to work on arts emerging from countries. It's not Mongolian art; it is art in Mongolia. Centuries ago we could have said that this art is typically from this region or that country, but today things have changed. Contemporary art for instance, doesn't have borders and is not related to a specific technique. Therefore, we won’t speak about Mongolian contemporary art, but about contemporary Art in Mongolia. To give you an example, I could be working in New York, but my work will not be qualified American, it will be a creation made in New York. It is true that cultural background and education have an impact on your work, and I will explain more about this later. So does the place where you stay temporarily. Everything around you has an effect on your work. However, the location does not give the identity of the creation.

Then, according to you, how does your origins and cultural background influence the artist?
Everyone has a different way of perceiving things. The origin and the education of the painter will have most certainly an impact on the way he will draw ideas, feelings and life elements. His perception and understanding of life is in many aspects constructed by his place of origin. For instance, a Mongolian will picture human – horse relations differently than a Frenchman.

In the German documentary about your artwork available on YouTube, we can see many of your paintings filled with human figures. Can you explain to us what you wanted to express?
When we simply look at someone, a girl or man, we cannot understand their essence. And yet they are animated by a world of their own. During these last seven years I wanted to understand and make understand what this inside life is about. In some paintings it questions what is beyond we can see, in a certain way the afterlife.

Could you tell us more about yourself? How did painting entered your life?
I was born in Ulaanbaatar. Although I am a capital city boy, when I was a kid I had the luck to live in the countryside. In that time I wanted to be a nomad. I was fascinated by the herders' life. And I had the chance to discover all the provinces of Mongolia. I decided to make live my fascination through painting. Then I started to paint a lot. Everything that I saw was painted. And after 15 years, I had to make some choices. Although life was difficult I succeeded to sell some paintings and so I decided to be a painter.

How studying in Germany influenced your way of painting?
Everybody speaks of arts education in Italy or in France, but I chose Germany because I liked the way they would teach painting with the sense of details. It was really helpful for my work on miniatures. Moreover, education in Germany was tuition free.

When do you feel the need to paint? How do you deal with the creation process?
When suddenly a new idea pops into my head while I am working on a painting, I immediately start again, because I believe an idea is worth putting onto paper when it is fresh. We could compare the poet with the painter. People can understand a poet's poem through words and if everything could be explained with words everybody will be a poet. For me the colors of my paintings are like the words of a poem. Through colors the idea evolves and progressively you can start to understand the whole idea.

The size of your paintings seems to grow every time you start a new work. Are you trying to reach the immensity of the steppe? Which is what I feel when I am in front of your painting.

I like to paint on big scales because I find the way people approach a large artwork interesting. They are at the same time impressed by the size, and they are also focusing on details. Although I paint miniatures, what I find interesting about big canvas is that public's attention is picked more quickly and permanently.
In Mongolia it is trickier to reach the public's interest because in general they perceive pictorial art as objects of decoration. They would buy an artwork if it is simple and positive. If painters include impressions, the painting will have fewer chances to be purchased. Those who paint happy paintings with a positive composition will have more chances in the market. But life is not always positive. The goal of the painter is also to question himself, to understand why he is painting. Therefore, it implies to work on emotions and feelings felt during his existence.

How do you think art in Mongolia and artists’ conditions need to be improved?
I think that politicians and the State should develop the mechanisms needed to improve artistic and artists’ conditions in Mongolia. By definition artists don't work for money. They work to fulfill their passions and they create for others. They are sometimes the most qualified to express society’s problems. They have an important role to play in various levels.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Otgonbayar Ershuu (Mongolian: Эршүүгийн Отгонбаяр; * 18. January 1981 in Ulan Bator) is a Mongolian painter. His artist’s name is OTGO.
 
Life: 
He grew up among seven siblings and one adoptive brother and was fascinated by painting ever since his childhood. His talent was discovered and by the age of 15 years he had his own solo exhibitions. Ershuu studied traditional Mongolian Painting in Ulan Bator in 1998. During his academic studies he created around 400 pictures. After his studies he participated in several expeditions to historical sites in Mongolia as a painter and conservator. Ershuu studied the different techniques and iconography of the miniature paintings as well as their spiritual backgrounds at the Buddhist-lamaist monasteries. He has been active as a free lance artist since 1998. In addition to his free artistic works he has created around 600 “research images.” Ershuu has been living in Berlin since 2005. From 2007 to 2010 he studied at the Institute for Art in Context, Faculty of Fine Arts, Berlin University of the Arts and graduated with a Masters of Arts in 2010. Otgonbayar Ershuu has been exhibiting his work in international exhibitions in Japan, Sweden, France, the Netherlands, India, Czech, Switzerland, Germany and Mongolia.

Thangka painting: 
OTGO’s Thangkas have not evolved from religious intentions but were rather inspired by the challenge to learn such a demanding as well as traditional technique. A deep fascination with the technology of producing such a work of art as well as his own anticipation of an individual artistic implementation in the face of strict regulations, incited the artist’s ambitions and posed the beginning of a longtime development in the field of Thangka painting. OTGO developed his painting techniques on long journeys through Mongolia. These could be described as a potpourri of experience, endurance and incredible artistic talent. One of OTGO’s unique characteristics is to paint his depictions directly on the canvas thereby evading the process of sketching. After considering that his pictures are only slightly bigger than a slide one perceives clearly how detailed, precise and perfect the painter has to work in order to create such a picture. Otgonbayar Ershuu has created 600 Thangkas of which the majority of the pictures were created in a single attempt. Each streak can only be commenced once and it is barely impossible to correct any mistakes. States of utter concentration need to be maintained despite natural human needs or unpredictable distractions. Mongolian Thangka painting has been miniaturized according to the tradition of its country and even the iconography has been adapted to the diverse existing beliefs. OTGO’s repertoire of figures draws on the theotechny of Shamanism, of Tengerism and Buddhism. Remarkable is also his depiction of mostly erotic themes. One of the principles of the Mongolian belief is the achievement of the “unity of all” by overcoming all antagonisms perceptible in the world of reality. Emblematic of this is the sexual union of man and woman, which bears the seed of a new life. It follows in considering this principal thought that the eroticization of the religious content of images becomes a natural and almost self-evident consequence. Otgonbayar Ershuu takes his topics and divine figures from traditional artistic depictions. His miniature gods are partially details of bigger paintings or pictorial interpretations of a sculpture. They are however always individualized in his unique, very special mode and have developed into real “OTGO’s.” During the production of his Thangkas Otgonbayar Ershuu uses different primers. In order to obtain these it is necessary to pre-treat his canvases. The black primer is a mixtures of carbon black, chalk and vodka or milk liquor. He adds to this a mixture of pigments, minerals and plants. Finally the mixture is bound with glue extracted from yak hide and applied to both sides of the canvas. Even after ten years a “smelling test” regarding these small pictures will reveal the use of carbon black and alcohol to pre-treat the canvas and endows these miniature works of art with a mysterious and antique nature. 

Miniature painting:
It is absolutely remarkable in which precise and loving detail Otgonbayar Ershuu fills his canvases. Lively, colorful depictions of paradise, erotica and flocks of horses mesmerize his pictorial surfaces into imaginative compositions, capture and challenge to explore the world of miniature paintings. Otgonbayar Ershuu has created detailed paintings in breathtaking filigree in tempera on canvas. His newest works present a whole new world of creation. The young artist composed a fascinating coexistence of detailed miniature painting and active abstraction of picture elements in acrylic on canvas.
 
Comic: 
One of the longtime works of Otgonbayar Ershuu has been his “Secret History of the Mongols – related in the style of Mongolian painting as a comic.” This comic consists of about 600 pages, which are divided into 12 chapters. Each page features several pictures amounting to a work of about altogether 3000 drawings. The “Secret History of the Mongols” was written about 800 years ago and is considered the oldest and most significant Mongolian work of literature – as myth, epos and chronic all at once. It did not contain any illustrations originally. In order to make this history more comprehensive and interesting for all ages, Ershuu decided to transform the content of this significant work into Mongolian miniature painting. The idea emerged from his belief that the viewing of images is often easier than reading. One of his main concerns during the development of the comic was to portray ethnic features of the Mongols as well as historical facts and artifacts as precisely and genuine as possible. Therefore he had to pursue extensive researches which lead him into various different academic areas. By including miniature painting in his work he intended to capture something characteristically and traditionally Mongolian.

Critiques: 
...From time to time his art tilts towards the almost grotesque, as if the picture was so full of humans that they start to devour each other. Whole armies disappear into the mouth of another human; masses of humans wriggle closely around each other and it may either be associated with overpopulation or a perishing global orgy... (Åsa Jonsén newspaper review „Nerikes Allehanda“ 11/17/2007 (Örebro, Sweden) 

...Through his studies OTGO has brought miniature painting to new heights. In modifying his position in regard to the picture the onlooker discovers the picture-in-picture composition as if looking through an artistically arranged prismatic telescope, which reveals detailed sceneries with completely independent meanings with every approaching step. This obfuscates the painting’s overall impression of the playful handling of colors and motifs and the peaceful coexistence of stencil-like precise, seemingly light and cheerful elements which may only be perceived from a distance. With each step towards the picture the onlooker discovers a new and diverse aspect of its interiority... (Uwe Ahnert, gallery owner, Collection Freudenberg, Berlin 2009)

OTGONBAYAR ERSHUU

Otgonbayar Ershuu was born in Mongolia in 1981. He started painting as a child, his most common subject being that of horses, the national animal of the Mongols, which he depicted in playful drawings and paintings. It is common practice that children in Mongolia learn to ride a horse before they learn to walk. This creates a deep familiarity with these animals, which is reflected and felt in Otgonbayar's paintings.

Otgonbayar carried his passion for painting throughout his school years and at the age of 15 exhibited his works at the "Cultural Palace of Mongol Children" in Ulaanbaatar. Daily school life, on the other hand, was difficult for the young artist, and during periods of creative projects he routinely failed to attend his classes. Before receiving his high school diploma, the University of Ulaanbaatar accepted him as a student because of his extraordinary artistic abilities. From 1996 to 1998 Otgonbayar studied "traditional Mongolian painting" and received his degree as a painter. Feeling a deep connection with his home country, he decided to learn the craft of Mongolian miniature painting. There was, however, no course of study in this subject, and he acquired the skill within a six-year period of auto-didactic study. 

During the years 1998 and 2004, Otgonbayar traveled to Mongolia's historic sites and took part in numerous cultural and social projects. As a member of the "Mongolian Foundation for the War against Poverty" he held workshops for children. In the role of a conservationist, he works against the decay of Mongolia's cultural heritage and in his disciplined self-study as an artist he mastered the traditional techniques and iconographic elements of Mongolian miniature painting. One of these traditionally Mongolian techniques is tangka painting. In this meditative painting process, small images of deities are created - every image must be finished in a single sitting. The final step is always the painting of the eyes: the painterly opening of the eyes "wakes" the deity in the image. 

Otgonbayar created 600 images of deities in the traditional tangka technique. He explains that "tangka painting means that the spirit is painting, not the hands, and like meditation it gives new strength and energy." Otgonbayar has been living and working in Berlin as a freelance artist since 2005. Besides the completion of the Master's course "Art in Context" at the University of the Arts Berlin (UDK), he diligently follows his passion for painting. Drawing from the acquired traditional Mongolian techniques, the young artist has created his own unique and distinctive style of modern miniature painting. 

"The most important foundation of miniature painting is natural light. In Mongolia, the sun shines about 300 days a year. In Germany, on the other hand, this is a challenge - the sky is almost always dark." (Otgonbayar) 

Otgonbayar does not use optical aids for his miniature paintings; special training enables him to paint using nothing but his eyes, even in difficult lighting situations. The level of precision and love for detail that fills Otgonbayar's canvases is impressive. Lively, colorful images of paradise, erotica and herds of wild horses create enchanting and captivating painted surfaces, inviting the viewer to explore these miniature painted worlds. Using tempera paint on canvas, Otgonbayar created detailed works of breathtakingly delicate nature; his most recent paintings present themselves in an entirely new manner: using acrylic on canvas, the young artist composes a fascinating combination of elements of detailed miniature painting and abstraction. 

Since September 25th 2010, Otgonbayar became the first Mongol outside of Mongolia to open an art gallery. The name of the gallery defines its philosophy: the Mongolian word ZURAG means image, painting, drawing, photograph and depiction – in short, it encourages diversity of expression. ZURAG Gallery aims to become more than just an exhibition space; it seeks to be a place of cultural and artistic exchange in which the perception of Mongolian culture is sharpened. 

“Roaring Hooves” is the name of Otgonbayar ‘s current exhibition: an exciting cross-section through tempera and acrylic paintings of the young artist. Otgonbayar Ershuu has become “a Mongol with a thousand horses…” In colorful herds, they gallop across the canvases and carry us away into a multi-facetted miniature universe. Minimundus shows us the world – Otgonbayar will show us Mongolia, the land of horses. Who else would do it—who else has painted half a million horses?
