I had a joint show at LEON Gallery with my friend Doug Spencer, and it was my first time collaborating with another visual artist. It was an amazing shift in perspective for me to scheme and execute ideas with another person and I learned a lot about myself as an individual and as an artist.

Denver Artists to Watch in 2019

303 Magazine | 1/15/2019

Tsogo is a first-generation Mongolian-American immigrant, meaning she was born in Mongolia, raised in Hungary until the age of eight and then moved with her family to the US. According to Tsogo, she is “the only actively practicing Mongolian-American woman artist in America” — she is also a DACA recipient. Over the last few years, Tsogo has been quietly working behind the scenes of the Denver art community, bringing to life several projects that revolve around immigrant rights, sexual abuse survivors and the plight of being a woman of color.
