Creation of a Thangka by Nanjing University of Art, Zhu Tianhang
Thangka is the unique fabric-painting art of Tibet, and few modern people know the origins and production processes of Thangka. I used the form of the temple city to explain the production process of making Thangka paintings. The final design piece is large and visually ornate. The infographic uses these sacred designs, so the project itself is a huge Thangka design. I also used sculpture as an inspiration; parts of the infographic are based on the Statue of the Tang Card, and a statue of the Buddha. In this way I am re-interpreting traditional art for a modern public audience.
