Lotus leaf painting is a unique experience inspired by Asian art and tradition.
Lotus leaves symbolize purity of heart and mind. When stretched over a canvas to dry, they also create a unique texture for painting.
Our canvases are carefully crafted with real lotus leaves sustainably grown in Thailand, which are picked for the best quality and durability to achieve ideal finishes. No two lotus leaf canvases are alike! Your canvas is one of a kind!
It’s taken several years to perfect the process and the skill to allow the leaves to remain intact, flexible and still retain their color. It's an intensive process, taking about 3 weeks from the time of picking to having the leaf placed on the canvas.
Enjoy creating a unique, beautiful piece of art through the Himapan Gallery experience!
