Venerating the sun and moon and living in harmony with nature is a traditional way of Mongolian life. These ways are honoured in the paintings of Adiyabazar Chadraabal.
Adiyabazar Chadraabal was born on October 3rd, 1979 in Zuun Mod Soum of Tuv Province, Mongolia. His father has been an artist-painter for over 40 years and influenced him to become an artist.

After enrolling at the National Pedagogical University, Adiyabazar relocated to Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has regularly participated in the annual exhibition called ‘Spring’. This exhibition/ contest is conducted by the Union of Mongolian Artists (UMA) of which he became a member in 2003. This allowed him to blend in with the lives of many artists and immerse himself further in his painting and the arts in general and irreversibly set his path to becoming a professional artist.

In 2004, Adiyabazar was elected as a board member and head of the Union of Young Artists under the UMA. This opportunity gave him more responsibility to manage and conduct art exhibitions and events among many young artists like himself.      

Adiyabazar Chadraabal held his first Solo exhibition in 2004 and in 2005 was invited to hold an exhibition Paris, France.

There came a pivotal moment in his professional career when in 2009, he was promoted to a Director’s position at the National Modern Art Gallery of Mongolia. During 4 years of his employment there, he held a number of exhibitions at the Gallery involving foreign and national artists and at the same time he continued to create his own artworks.

For the last 16 years, Adiyabazar has been creating artworks with a theme of horses in which his childhood love for animals played a significant role. He has held 11 Solo exhibitions, over 50 group exhibitions and has participated in over 10 International exhibitions. Currently, he works as Chairman of the International Federation of Artists in Mongolia. In 2010, he received the UMA Prize for Artist of the Year for his works.
