Rabkar Wangchuk is a Tibetan artist born and brought up in exile India. At the age of seven, he was sent to Gyudmed Tantric monastery in South India, where he trained for over twenty years under the revered thangka teacher the late venerable Ngawang Norbu, as well as under other great Tibetan masters. During those twenty years, he studied wood-carving, butter sculpture, and the consecration of sand mandalas. After creating an intricate Tibetan-styled entrance gate for the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (TIPA), he joined this prestigious institution with the goal of dedicating his life to his art. After one year, he became the head of the TIPA art and has served the institution since. His art has earned recognition in both the Tibetan and Western worlds. He is currently based in Queens, New York City.
