According to the report in the StreetArtNews, Adnate met with the Tibetan spiritual leader in India last. The artist has been very moved after the meeting and this artwork was his part to honour His Holiness.

“I believe the Dalai Lama needs as much exposure as he can get as he’s a great advocate of peace, compassion and resilience to the world” the report quoted the artist as saying.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama ever since losing his own country from 1959 and fleeing into Exile from Tibet, has been advocating for world peace, compassion and dialogue in every conflict without resorting to violence. He proposed the non-violent Middle Way Policy, which seeks to solve the Tibet Issue through dialogue with China. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 1989 among thousands of other felicitations in recognition of his advocacy for world peace.

Adnate is an artist that realizes his portraits in spray paint. He has moved past his roots in graffiti, utilizing the medium to carry his realist style into the fine art realm. [according to Metro Gallery…]
