The Art of Shashi Dhoj Tulachand

Blowhard, Esq. writes:

Orange County’s Bowers Museum is currently running an exhibition by an extraordinary artist named Shashi Dhoj Tulachand, a Nepalese Buddhist monk. Each of the nine thangkas, or temple murals, stands approximately 6.5-7 feet tall and is about 4 feet wide. The paintings, completed by Tulachand himself, are all masterpieces of composition, draughtsmanship, color, and painstaking detail. If you’re in the Los Angeles or Orange County areas, I encourage you to see them for yourself, as my crappy snapz don’t do them justice. Nevertheless, here’s a taste of Tulachand’s religious psychedelia.

    Wow, I appreciate your sharing. I’m not sure that I would have encountered this on my own.


    • You’re welcome. He seems to be very obscure. Not much about him on the Internet. When I asked a woman at the museum bookstore if they had an exhibition catalog she told me, “No, sorry. We’re lucky to have them at all.”


  2. Those are mind-blowing. I can’t imagine why he isn’t better-known.
