Master calligrapher Tashi Mannox to open UK gallery

"Homage to Mahakala" by Tashi Mannox

British calligraphy artist Tashi Mannox, a specialist in traditional and contemporary interpretations of Tibetan-related scripts and iconography and the go-to master for many Buddhist tattoo designs, will open his first UK gallery and shop August 30 in Hay-on-Wye, Herefordshire. The Tashi Gallery will feature Mannox’s original works and limited-edition prints, demonstrating both his rigorous classical discipline and creative re-envisioning of Himalayan Buddhist motifs. Mannox’s bespoke seal designs (sometimes colloquially referred to as “chops”) will also be on offer, including specialty vermillion seal inks he created in collaboration with Japan’s oldest masters of that tradition.
