Losang Gyatso was born in Lhasa, Tibet, but spent most of his life in the UK and the US. He worked in advertising and news media, operated restaurants in San Francisco and New York City, and played the role of Lord Chamberlain in Martin Scorsese's film on the Dalai Lama's early life, Kundun.
Gyatso left New York City for Boulder, Colorado in 2002 where he started working on his art. Initially a process of reconciling his own identity after decades of living in cities far from Tibet, his paintings evolved over time from explorations of ancient Tibetan myths and Buddhist ideas, towards a more universal, abstract, and playful way of seeing the world that is at once sensual and spiritual.
Gyatso lives just outside Washington, DC with his wife, but without a dog.
