Karma was born in 1952 in Lhasa, Tibet. He fled Tibet after the uprising against the Chinese in 1959, escaping into India as a refugee. There, he studied drawing and painting through his school years. In 1973, he studied Thanka Painting with a master of traditional Tibetan Thanka painting in Nepal. Since then, Karma has been making paintings based on Tibetan Buddhist deities.
In 1981, he migrated to Australia, and now lives in the “Bush” north of Kyogle with his wife and son. Karma's paintings are collected world-wide, and published in various books and magazines. His most recent paintings are mostly experiments, interweaving traditional techniques and symbols, with modern inspirations.
