Lok Chitrakar is a Master artist in Kathmandu who runs a traditional art training school.
He practices the unique heritage of Pauba art which dates back to the 12th century and requires multiple years of study to visually interpret Buddhist and Hindu philosophies.
It was an experience to watch him work, mixing mineral colors from Himalayan stones ground by hand. His paintings sell out before completion and he has exhibited across the world. The Rural Painter is proud to showcase these signed prints of his work.
Amitabha is the warmth of the western red, setting sun – his name literally means ‘infinite light’. Best known for compassion and love, as Lord of the Lotus family, he originates from the seed syllable, Hrih, the symbol of the fire element.
