Exploring outside the essential and beautiful domain of traditional calligraphy, the Illuminated Iconographic series lends well to print. Having always been a colourist at heart - and harbouring a longstanding love of Celtic Christian illuminated manuscripts - Tashi employs the liberal use of full colour acrylic and mineral paints, alongside an abundance gold and silver leaf.
The resultant pieces are a resolute and joyous celebration of colour, where iconographic images and Tibetan calligraphy dance to communicate Buddhist philosophies.
These limited edition prints are of an extremely high quality: printed mostly on premium quality bamboo fine art paper, these reproductions do justice to the precision and detail of the original artworks. Such classic calligraphy is best enjoyed as larger prints, similar in size to the original art piece, though half-size prints may be more of a practical option if you have limited wall space.
Where gold and silver leaf have been used on the original artwork, prints are carefully hand gilded to produce an authentic real gold and silver finish. Please note that not all of the small prints can be gilded due to their size.
The prints are hand signed with their own edition number and stamped with the artist's personal seal in red Japanese cinnabar ink.
