Himalayan Art work brought in New York City
by J Saldron, Buddhist News, Feb 7, 2012
Here is an anticipated collection of art work brought back from the Himalayas by a Colombian artist and a Buddhist practitioner, Jose Sanint.
Threads of Life features beautiful and modern hand-woven textiles created by Tibetan and Himalayan artisans, using an ancient and maternal Tibetan-Himalayan-Buddhist weaving tradition. (Peacock with jewelry, Meaning – Wisdom, 87”x96.5”)
About Jose’s journey in the Himalayas
Jose has traveled through the Himalayas and discovered the unseen and unimaginable. Jose was on silence for almost 4 months and communicated with people through his notebooks – and that is how I met him in the summer of 2010. He would carry his Hindi-design notebook made out of natural paper with him everywhere he went, and collected every art piece he found on his path to discovery
He was on silence for “World Peace” he once told me when asked. By saving his words, he learnt how to appreciate the importance and the power of the voice. Not only in his art work is there is the reflection of his interpretation of his journey, but also he was saving his beautiful voice I heard once when he was out of the silence – only to bring out different dimension to his character.
Jose’s first exhibition was held at Salomon Arts Gallery in Tribeca, New York in November and December last year. This will be another exhibition we should not miss it if you happen to be in the City.
The exhibition will be held at the Tibet House in New York City
