Born in Tokyo, Rima Fujita is a fine artist currently residing in Southern California after living in New York City for thirty-two years. She graduated from Parsons School of Design with a Bachelor of Fine Art and she has exhibited work internationally to wide acclaim. She is a descendant of the Last Samurai and her creative aesthetic is strongly influenced by the philosophy of Bushido and Buddhism. Rima’s life-passion also lies in her philanthropic work. In 2001, she established “Books for Children” which is an organization that creates children’s books and donates them to Tibetan refugees. She has created six picture books and two of them in collaboration with Tibetan communities in exile.
In this episode of Tibet Talks, ICT speaks with Rima about her latest book, The Extraordinary Life of His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, as well as her work focused on the Tibetan environment, identity and cultural awareness.
Tibet Talks will stream on Facebook Live and on this webpage. The talk will also be released as a podcast, available on iTunes, Spotify and Google Podcasts. Learn more at savetibet.org/pod/.
