In his art, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has indeed assimilated the essence of traditional Chinese painting. Not only has His Holiness learned from the painting traditions of Song, Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasty scholars, His Holiness has also easily mastered the grand and vigorous style of pre-Song dynasty painting. Yet, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has not merely emulated the techniques of any one painter or any one school. His Holiness has learned from ancient artistry and has also learned from nature. Combining the two, His Holiness has created a novel and unique style of his own. From a careful examination of paintings by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, it is not difficult to see the legacy of tradition and the spirit of originality. The paintings of previous generations of Chinese artists cannot match His Holiness’s paintings.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has painted many different styles of Chinese paintings. Based upon these different styles, we have selected for your appreciation a very limited amount of contrasting paintings created by His Holiness.
