Traditional Thangka’s in the Digital Age

Digital Thangka - Fred van der ZeeI have been drawing digital thangka’s since 2008. As a former graphic designer, I already was familiar with using computers in art. Using them for drawing traditional thangka’s started when I met my drawing teacher Andy Weber, who has been drawing thangka’s and teaching this ancient art form for over 30 years.

Using traditional grids and drawing process, I have set out on a journey to discover the challenges and possibilities of weaving Tibetan tradition with modern technology.

If you like to follow the drawing process, you can visit my workshop on Facebook.
