Robert Powell, born in Sydney in 1948, studied humanities and architecture in Australia. He came to Asia in 1974 and was in India when Ladakh was opened to foreigners for the first time. He spent 7 months there documenting its Tibetan Architecture. That experience was the beginning of a lifelong exploration of Asian cultures, inspired by their material manifestations and especially their traditional architectures. Since then he has lived and worked in Asia, mostly in the Himalayas, in Nepal, India, Pakistan and also China and Japan. Since 2004 he has been based in Thailand and has begun a series of paintings from Angkor, and the south east Asian region. His sketchbooks, measured drawings, and photographs from more than three decades in Asia continue to inspire current works. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited and published widely and are the subject of two books. Major solo exhibitions have been held at: The Freer & Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. The Zürich Ethnographic Museum, Zürich The Patan Royal Palace Museum, Patan, Nepal Robert Powell’s work is also represented in public and private collections including: o r i g i n a l pa i n t i n g s ava i l a b l e f o r v i e w i n g b y a pp o i n t m e n t F o r pr i c e , ava i l a b i l i t y & limited edition a r c h i va l p i g m e n t pr i n t s p l e a s e C o n ta c t
