Zimbiri, born and raised in Bhutan, completed her undergraduate studies at Wheaton College, MA, with a double major in Economics and Fine Arts. She held the first female solo exhibition in Bhutan with her debut exhibition titled 'Faces'. The exhibition showcases people and their way of coping with society by wearing different ‘faces’. She is currently working on a series of paintings that explore the traditional Bhutanese paint (saa-tshen) and imagery. Zimbiri has exhibited her works in international art fairs in India, Hong Kong, and London.
Metho or flower in the Bhutanese language, is a collection of paintings turned into prints from Zimbiri's archive of work. In traditional Bhutanese art, flowers are often found in many if not all paintings; Buddhas holding a lotus flower in their hands, and deities either standing or sitting on a lotus pad. In addition, the background of Bhutanese murals and thangkas are always adorned with flowers. Despite the significance that these flowers hold in Buddhism, they often play the role of supporting characters. Through these artworks, Zimbiri hopes to move the spotlight to give these humble Methos their chance in the limelight.
