Karma, 38, is a Thangka painter and contemporary artist, residing in Dharamshala. Born an orphan-refugee, Karma was raised and educated in Tibetan Children’s Village School, Dharamshala. He received his formal thangka painting training at the Centre for Tibetan Arts and Crafts in Dharamshala (now part of Norbulingka Cultural Institute) under the guidance of renowned thangka painter master Rinzin Paljor, who was one of the main Potala court painters in Tibet, and while in exile continued working directly for His Holiness the Dalai Lama. After graduating in 1993, Karma has mainly worked as an independent artist on commissions from individuals, monasteries and schools and has devoted much of his time and energy to various political activities within the Tibetan community in exile, as well as to the study of the diverse Tibetan Thangka painting styles and contemporary art forms.
