One of my good friends and a fellow Fulbrighter in Mongolia is just about to wrap up her 10 months. Johannah Herr is an artist and designer from Brooklyn, NY. Through her research and art, Herr focused on Kazakh design and adapting it to large-scale murals and portraits. Her work brought her to stay with the Kazakh community in the far western province of Bayan Olgy three times.

The capstone of her Fulbright was a show at Ulaanbaatar’s Red Ger Gallery entitled “Homeland(s)” at the beginning of November. Sadly, I was unable to attend, but I thought this would be a great excuse to share some of her work with you.

You can follow Herr’s blog here.

  1. My two times in Mongolia were wonderful experiences. I taught English there. I was able to get to know an artist named Amartuvshin. Do you know of him? His art was primarily of the traditional Mongolian and their dress. If you do know him, I would love him email.

    Thanks for sharing this artist’s work. I also went on a Fulbright scholarship to Japan. I ennjoy your blogs and keeping up with what is happening in Mongolia. Nancy Boyer. boyerwrites@yahoo.com
