Abhayavajra has been painting for many years, since training at Wimbledon School of Art and The Slade. In recent years, his work has explored the essential elements of painting itself; the simpler the procedures, the deeper and richer the possibilities.

He was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 1995, but his paintings are not overtly Buddhist. Art aspires to reveal something universal, beyond cultural boundaries, and when it works, offers us a truer perception of reality.
