Tashi Norbu, an accomplished contemporary Tibetan artist based in Amsterdam, brings his powerful artwork to Toronto for the first time with TIME TRAVELLERS: THE ART OF TASHI NORBU art exhibit. Tashi Norbu’s artworks explore fantastical realms inhabited by diverse ancient religious symbols and pop culture icons. Courageously transcending boundaries to forge the new frontier of Contemporary Tibetan Art, Norbu reveals parallels between emerging Western scientific knowledge and ancient Buddhist Philosophy, while maintaining a vigilant voice of Tibet’s suffering under occupation and cultural genocide. This exhibition will feature 20 of Norbu’s works at Gallery 1313, right in the heart of “Little Tibet” in Parkdale, Toronto. There will also be off-site events: LIGHT FOR FREEDOM, a storytelling/live painting exploration of the Tibetan self-immolations, 108 BUDDHAS painting workshop for kids and STREETWINDOWS, a Pop-up Interactive Public Art Installation connecting the Tibetan diaspora via modern technology.
