From 1980 to 1991 Nortse studied art at various schools, including Tibet University in Lhasa, the Central Arts Academy in Beijing and the art academies in Guangzhou and Tainjing. His early artistic expression as a stage designer coupled with his academic training can be seen in his striking mixed media works.

His work deals with issues which are as relevant to London as to Lhasa: global warming, environmental degradation, overpopulation, alcoholism among the young, and the desire to form one’s own identity in a world of mass media and the erosion of culture and tradition.

His work has been exhibited in Beijing, Colorado, Konigswinter, London, Lhasa, New York and Santa Fe and is held in collections worldwide.
