Zen Brush Painting Demonstration: Saturday, April 13, 2-3pm
Raised in Thailand in the tradition of Theravada Buddhism, Vichai only began to explore Zen Buddhism in the last fifteen years through study, meditation and painting. As he paints, he goes into a zen-like state. Even so, it may take 20 or 30 paintings before he is satisfied with one. That makes every painting part of an evolution and every imperfection the impetus to move forward/progress/perfect. The goal becomes to recreate and repurpose in a state of mindfulness: to upcycle.
