Tibet artist Sonam Phuntsok


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

At the Pacific Northwest College of Art, we watch as Tibetan artist Sonam Phuntsok works on a giant painting called a thangka, a form of Buddhist meditation. Having been awarded a grant and finding the perfect work space at the PNCA, Sonam started on his current piece but has been creating thangkas for more than twenty years.
