In the Ang Tsherin Sherpa Tibetan Spirit series, the artist analyzes the consistency of Tibetan culture and practices, even in the face of globalization.

Ang Tsherin Sherpa states, "My art practice explores contemporary issues while using various newer techniques interspersed with my traditional training," which would explain the entrancing imagery that mixes modern imagery with traditional. The artwork looks at prayer and worship, as well as games and toys that pass the time in North American culture, contrasting elements of his Nepal childhood with his current life in California.

The Ang Tsherin Sherpa Tibetan Spirit series uses a rich golden background that works as an enlightening setting for the figures portrayed to become more prominent.
