Artist Tashi Norbu (Tibetan, b. 1974) was educated as a traditional Tibetan thangka painter at the office of the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India. Born in Bhutan in exile, Norbu has Belgian citizenship, and lives and works in Emmen, in the Netherlands. He received his formal western artistic training at the Saint Lucas Academy of Visual Arts in Ghent, Belgium. As a result of this diverse background, his artwork is an amalgamation of both worlds, the fundamentals of Tibetan and Buddhist traditions and the influence of western art mediums, concepts, and icons. Partnering with local classical musicians, Norbu created a large mural in a short time span, as a type of performance art, in the Rotunda gallery.
