 The traditional Implented artwork on denim "Transcending boundaries"


This weekend the contemporary Tibetan artist Tashi Norbu  opened a new exposition called the "The Brilliance of Enlightened Awareness". The exposition was traditional ceremonial opened at the beautiful location the Nieuwe Yogaschool of Johan Noorloos in the Jordaan, Amsterdam. 

I love the work of Tashi Norbu. He is a brilliant painter with a unique style. Specialized in mixed media techniques, using mostly denim or canvas, his works are bright, colorfull, playful and spiritual. He calls his divine art " Aerodynamic Tibetan Contemporary Art ". Tashi Norbu fuses his Buddhist traditions and Tibetan culture with strong influences of the western art forms, western ideas and western icons of modern times. Originally Tashi is educated as a traditional thanka painter,at the court of the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala,India. The principles of thangka painting are clearly visible in his contemporary artworks. The artworks of Tashi Norbu tell the stories of Tibetan Buddhist culture and traditions. But also shows modern life from a Buddhist point of view 

The most divine self expression of the soul is Art 

 Same like Tashi Norbu i like Tibetan Dragon clouds
