We are happy to introduce our new Keenobby expertainer, Tristan. Born in Bangkok and raised in France, Tristan became aware of Lotus Leaf Painting on a trip back to his birthplace, where he met the founders. Inspired, he soon brought it to the states.
We have had the pleasure of asking Tristan a few question about this pretty new and unique discipline in the US.
How did you get into Lotus Leaf Painting?
I was born in Bangkok, and spent my child years in Indonesia. My family has always been very interested in and connected with South East Asia. A friend of mine who was living in Singapore heard about the Himapan Project and put me in touch with the founder in Bangkok, and that’s how it all started.
“As you know, the meditation position is called the Lotus posture, because it also symbolizes harmony and happiness.”
“This is the perfect relaxing activity for New Yorkers to escape the crazy rhythm of the city.”
What makes it really fun is that since the lotus leaves are already so beautiful, you are sure to go home with a really gorgeous painting, no matter if you are an expert painter or not!
