Galek Yangzom (b. 1999) is a Bhutanese artist who works primarily with oil paint. At Swarthmore College, where she double majored in Studio Art and Economics, she focused her time on expanding her familiarity with multiple mediums. During her thesis exhibition, she showcased her exploration of memory and the role it plays in object sacredness, familiarity, and ownership. In order to convey the stories and emotions of her world, Galek attempts to use magic realism in her work. She exaggerates, distorts, and extends the drama of our immediate reality to see outside the superficial.
