Tashi has studied under many accomplished Tibetan Lamas, including receiving artistic guidance from H.E Situ Rinpoche and has drawn on inspiration from the calligraphy works of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. However, the foundation of Tashi’s training is set by the high standards and clarity of instructions from his root Lama, Akong Tulku Rinpoche.




For seventeen-years he apprenticed under the direction of a master of the Karma Gardri Tibetan art tradition, Sherab Palden Beru, studying the Tibetan language and traditional temple decoration which coincided with the timely building of the Temple at the Samye Ling Tibetan centre in Scotland.


In 1988 as part of Tashi's monastic training he entered a closed four year Buddhist retreat, which also gave a sensitive environment to meticulously copy ancient Tibetan texts, furthering his training as a scribe in the highly disciplined, and multiple forms of Tibetan calligraphy.


In 2000 Tashi Travelled to India, where in Dharamsala he was privileged to study under a master of ancient Sanskrit: Lama Pema Lodrup, These artistic forms of Sanskrit called Lanza and Wartu, are preserved by only a handful of practitioners in the world today.

Laughing in the face of death - Complete Series
Laughing in the face of death - Complete Series - Limited Edition

Illuminated Iconographic Tibetan Calligraphy.

The complete series of five limited edition giclée prints. Signed and stamped with the personal seal of Tashi Mannox.

These outstanding reproductions are premium-quality giclée printed, on mould-made papers (the finest and oldest paper-making technique) of 310-315 g/m². The papers; Velin and Aquarelle 100% rag, are of museum conservation standard. The UV colorfast ink ensures stability and longevity for 120 years.

Tashi’s creative activity has historically been focused on contemporary Tibetan calligraphy, using the pure expression of bold black ink on the stark contrast of white paper.

It is no surprise to those who know Tashi for his natural relationship with colour; that he has over the past four years, been quietly creating a collection of paintings featuring illuminated Tibetan iconographic calligraphy in vibrant colour.

This new body of works is called:

Laughing in the Face of Death:  To live and die without regrets.

At the heart of this new collection is a series of five striking paintings, executed in a full palette of acrylic paint. Tashi utilized techniques usually found in traditional Tibetan Thanka painting. These pieces are intricate and finely shaded and include gold and silver leaf. 

Each one of these pieces has taken many months of patience to carefully paint, in contrast to his more instant brisk calligraphy of the past years.

All five painting shows a happy, almost manic grinning skull. The skull is symbolic of impermanence in Tibetan iconography. Each of these emanates a different emotion, from a wrathful to a more peaceful expression.

The set of paintings migrate through different moods, from death to re-birth, known as the bardo in Tibetan, translated as ‘between stage’.

Each of the different moods can also be depicted as the transformation of the five ‘mind poisons’ into the ‘five wisdoms’, associated with the Five ‘Buddha families’.

This is a popular Tibetan Buddhist theme, which Tashi has illuminated to his own interpretation, which is based in his training in Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and iconography. Tashi explains:

“A Buddhist practitioner, a Yogi or Yogini, strives to live without harming others and themselves, up to the point of death without any regrets, knowing that they have led a full and meaningful life, and thus able to look into the face of death confidently, laughing without fear. 

For such a practitioner the time of death is a great opportunity.  

But because generally as a non-practitioner we do not know ourselves, we are ignorant, and fear death, the ultimate unknown”.

Tashi’s intention is that for the viewer of the five paintings, there can be much to contemplate, from standing back and comparing each of the skulls to each other, perhaps noting their supple change in facial expression, to standing close to look into their void like eternally dark eyes.

“Looking into the face of the skull in the painting is somewhat like looking at oneself, a suggestion of ones inner self and emotions, rather like looking into a mirror: it may not be an entirely comfortable experience, but there is a familiarity, which is honest and beautiful at the same time”. 

This brings up the point of the general Western attitude to death and emotions, which is somewhat morbid, hidden and generally swept under the carpet. Facing images of death maybe somewhat challenging, but with courage of heart, one can laugh in the face of death, overcoming ones fears and transforming a negative into a positive.

The middle three skulls are crowned with the Sun and Moon, symbolising Wisdom and Compassion, the emblem of balance.

Impermanence
Impermanence by Tashi Mannox

'Impermanence'

The words ‘mi rtag pa’ or
impermanence is seen in the toppling Tibetan Tsugring script. Tsugring means the“tall and stable style”. Look closely and you will see the chracters are made up of small dancing skeletons, which fade into decay at the base of the letters. The personal seal of the artist is also broken into two. A wonderful reminder that all created things will eventually decay and pass away.

This is the second of the ‘Four Contemplations’:

1. Precious Human Existence
2. Impermanence
3. Karma

4. Samsara

Cause and Effect
Karma: Cause and Effect

Karma ~ 'Cause and Effect'

The heavy debt of past negative actions are always collected by the law of Karma.

Equally any positive actions accumulated will result in the fruition of good Karma.

There is no rule in time to say when good and bad Karma will ripen, other than all the relevant causes and conditions come together for that particular ‘karma’ to manifest.

Generally, Karma can be defined as ‘personal karma’ and ‘collective karma’:
‘personal’ as a result of our own intention and action, ‘collective’ as a result of a unified conditioning, such as a collective intention and action, of a family, city, nation and as a world.

In this piece, the main word ‘Karma’ in Uchen script stands strong, supporting an accumulation of words that repeatedly read ‘cause and effect’.

This is the third of the ‘Four Contemplations’:

1. Precious Human Existence
2. Impermanence
3. Karma

4. Samsara

Precious Human Existence
Precious Human Existence

'Precious Human Existence'

Appreciate life, as it is difficult to obtain and easily lost. To be born a human with all the favourable conditions to practice the Dharma , is often described as being as "rare as a morning star".

This curling Bindu (Sanskrit) or Tigli (Tibetan), holds the words ‘precious human birth’ in a Tibetan Drutsa script.

Transformation

Illuminated Iconographic Tibetan Calligraphy

“Transformation"

This piece shows three rare blue lotus flowers representing the ‘past, present and future’ the passing of time.

This illuminated calligraphy translates as ‘Transformation’, the script style is called Dru tsha; a cursive script traditionally used for free style Tibetan calligraphy.
‘Transformation’ is made up of two words in Tibetan, the first word sprul meaning emanate, incarnate, manifest. The second bsgyur meaning change, transform.

The particular technique used here is brushed in a resist leaving the natural colour of the paper.

In Eastern iconography, the lotus flower is often symbolic of purity and is considered   an example of transformation, feeding from the composting mud at the bottom of a lake or pond, transforming into the most pure and glorious of flowers, standing proud high above the water surface, un-splashed by the (Samsaric) bustle of pond life.

“Like a Shadow"

The main body of calligraphy is the first two verses from The Dhammapada, written in the Tibetan Tsugring script style, this reads:

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.  If the mind is clear, what ever we do or say the mind will bring happiness that will follow you like your shadow.
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.  If the mind is polluted, what ever we do or say leads to suffering which will follow you as a cart trails a horse.”

The small text in red reads “spoken at Sravasti concerning the monk Caksuspala”

The Tibetan robed monk with his shadow holds the heading character of the first verse.
The second verse ends tumbling off the back of a cart pulled by the panic fleeing horse.

Seven Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche
Seven Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche

Contemporary & Traditional Tibetan Calligraphy
"Seven Line prayer to Guru Rinpoché”

Japanese mineral paint on Bhutanese Tsasho bark fiber paper,
80 cm x 58cm
2010

The Seven Line prayer is a popular supplication prayer to Guru Rinpoché, asking for his blessing to remove inner and outer obstacles. This is shown in the Petsug script that flanks either side of the large gold Hum character in the Uchen script style. The Hum character is also the seed syllable of Guru Rinpoché.

Standing proudly at the apex of this piece is his sacred mantra depicted in the ancient Lantsha Sanskrit script, and is pronounced:

“om ah hum benza guru padma siddhi hum”
Opportunity
Opportunity

The words ‘seize the moment’ in the Tibetan Dru-tsa script is depicted wrapped with the stems and leaves of five different coloured lotus flowers. Each of these flower represent the five Buddha families. The analogy of the five flower buds is the opportunity to transform the five negative emotions, pride, attachment, anger,  jealousy and stupidity, into the five wisdoms represented in the manifestation of the five Buddha families and their corresponding colours.  As any plant that will take root and blossoms in slightest of conducive conditions, its leaves hooked and curl to grab as opportunists, just like every moment of life with the experience of karmic fruition, is an opportunity to take hold and transform a negative situation into a positive advantage.
Homage to Mahakala
Homage to Mahakala

A powerful Image of Mahakala the great black one by the artist Tashi Mannox. His all seeing eyes penetrate the past, present and future. Snarling and bearing teeth to bite trough ego clinging, he is somewhat demon looking, though what Mahakala represents is the wrathful quality of compassion, needed to cut through the more stubborn inner and outer obstacles on our path to enlightenment.
The Great Perfection Ah
The Great Perfection Aa

The central character illuminates white and is resplendently pure among aura like swirls spinning from the blackness of limitless space. Seen in the classical Uchen script, it is the last letter of the Tibetan alphabet, from which all other sounds are produced. It is considered essentially pure and stainless. It represents the ultimate true nature of mind, which is inherent in all beings.

Bhutanese tsasho paper, 2012

Seated on lotus flowers are the four essential words: Love, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity. These are displayed in a style of blue Drutsa script. Below these four lotus flowers are foot notes in a rare round tailed Drutsa script from 14th century Tibet. This translates as:

“According to the Mahayana meditation that focuses on measureless beings, there are four states of mind that set in motion measureless punya (auspicious or positive effects or states). Namely: measureless love, measureless compassion, measureless joy and measureless equanimity”.

Homage to the Four Fold Refuge

Chinese ink and Japanese mineral paint on

Bhutanese Tsasho paper, 2012

The main body of calligraphy is a special ‘high’ form of Uchen, inspired by a 16th century manuscript from Tsurphu Monastery, the main seat of the Karmapa Lama’s in central Tibet.

The first dark maroon characters read ‘Namo’ in Lantsa script and this translates as ‘homage’. At the end of the prayer is a ‘full stop’ character in the same Lantsa script. The smaller lettering in red at the end of the refuge prayer, translates as “The Four Fold Refuge”

The four objects of refuge are highlighted throughout the main body of calligraphy in rust red mineral paint that read Lama, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha’

Primordial Purity, Golden World
Primordial Purity, Golden World by Tashi Mannox

Primordial Purity, Golden World

The universal basis of primordial purity (of our mind).

The glorious golden ground (of our world)

Dutch gold and copper leaf on a ground of acrylic paint

on heavy water colour paper

The splendor of the universe, our world, from where we are born and return, can be experienced by us from a sacred viewpoint of our innate purity that is naturally within us. This interrelationship between heaven and earth evokes the creativity of man, expressed in words and the beauty of calligraphy.

The uppermost line of Tibetan cursive script that soars high in the sky translates as “universal, common ground of primordial purity”. Below, as if dancing among the swirling energy of the earth are black letters that translates as “the mythological golden basis of our known world, glorious and magnificent”.

Lapis Mani Mantra - Fine Art Limited Edition Print by Tashi Mannox
Lapis Mani Mantra - Fine Art Print by Tashi Mannox

"Lapis Mani Mantra" - Fine Art Print by Tashi Mannox

Historically, sacred mantras were held in the highest regard and honored in pure gold lettering on tablets of precious lapis lazuli. Bowing to this ancient tradition, Tashi Mannox has created the Mani mantra oṃ maṇipadme hūṃ according to the classical divine proportionate construction of the Tibetan Uchen script, that sits upon a flowing lapis like background.

The Mani mantra is deep and vast in meaning; it said to have great benefit to who speaks, hears or sees this liberating mantra that is the embodiment of infinite understanding engendering impartial loving-kindness.

Such sacred mantras are usually placed high within a household, especially above a doorway that one often passes through, which is considered to bless, purify and protect the family members and their environment.

The hand finished print is gilded with the high luster of Dutch Gold leaf.

One size print only (50x23cm), £245 (gilded) or £155 (not gilded)

Each print is signed and stamped with the personal seal of Tashi Mannox. They are carefully colour matched to the original artwork.
