In 1961 Aloka began his studies at the Harrow School of Art at the age of thirteen. After nine years of study, including time at Saint Martins and the Maidstone School of Art, he went on to teach art for six years, during which time he made contact with the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order (now the Triratna Buddhist Community) and started to produce Buddhist art in a style appropriate for the West, while maintaining elements of the Buddhist tradition. Over the next thirty years he has produced hundreds of works of art, many of traditional Buddhist images, and his work has been widely published. The Windhorse Colouring Book includes a number of Aloka’s drawings.
