Kelly Dorji is not only an artist, but also a versatile individual who understand the multifaceted aspects of art that manifest as hope and beauty in one's life.
The Hidden Rainbow took many months of gruelling research and revisions. Art is timeless and external, in that it is an expression of the self through symbolism. Though these symbols used in The Hidden rainbow may be Buddhist in their origins, it is true for all those who believe in the divine, the humanity and the innate goodness that is inherent in every single being.
A GUIDE TO THE USE OF COLOURS AND THEIR SYMBOLISM IN BUDDHISM
The main colours used in Buddhist art are blue, black, white, red, green and yellow. With black as the exception, the other five colours are representative of a specific Buddha in the depiction of the Five Wisdom Buddhas of the Vajrayana or Tantric Tradition of Buddhism.
