Traditional thangka’s
in the digital age

Who is Digital Thangka?

Digital Thangka - Fred van der Zee

I 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 processes, I have set out on a journey to discover the challenges and possibilities of weaving Tibetan tradition with modern technology.

For an overview of my digital thangka's have a look at my work.

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