What is Lotus Leaf Painting?
Lotus Leaf Painting is the process of creating artwork directly on naturally dried lotus leaves itself. Exported from Thailand, lotus leaves grow in muddy water in an environment where chemicals are not utilized.
It is believed that Himapan Painting is a therapeutic activity in the form of art, which helps individuals relax and release stress. Customized shapes, colors, and designs are able to be applied when creating artwork on dried lotus leaves.
HELLO! I'M CARLA
While living in Bangkok, Thailand, I discovered a creative escape from city life and technology called Himapan Gallery Bangkok. I learned to paint on real lotus leaves that had been dried and mounted on canvases.
Who knew how relaxing painting on actual lotus leaves would be!?!
