One of the world's foremost contemporary Tibetan calligraphers. Tashi innovates in technique and concept - but is firmly rooted in the integrity of the ancient tradition.
Two decades spent as a monk of the Kagyu order inform his practice. His

calligraphy and iconography

, while technically and aesthetically compelling, also acts to illuminate ancient Buddhist wisdoms.
Now residing near the Welsh border, Tashi regularly exhibits in New York, London and Moscow. This gallery hosts Tashi's calligraphic artworks, both historical and current.
