Karma Phuntsok

Tibetan Painting Workshop

Come spend time with master painter Karma Phuntsok and learn some simple techniques of Tibetan Painting. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The art of Karma Phuntsok is a unique and dynamic expression of contemporary Buddhist Art. The startling beauty and richness which graces his work is influenced by his diverse life experiences: from a childhood in Tibet under Chinese oppression to life as a refugee in India; his love life in the Australian Bush, and the veneration with which he holds His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Internationally acclaimed, Karma’s work is scattered throughout the world, in private collections and galleries, and in Australia at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Queensland Art Gallery.
