Riassunto: 2007 - WINNER of the BANFF MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL BEST TRAVEL - ADVENTURE BOOK. For seven years Allen Smutylo has been writing and working on a body of paintings and prints that document his incredible travels and experiences in the Himalaya with small groups of Tibetan Buddhist people known as the Changpa (nomads) who live on the edge of India's border with Tibet. At an altitude of 15,000' in one of the world's harshest environments, Smutylo had the rare opportunity to experience the highly complex and rich culture of the Changpa. In day to day life, sacred rituals, community celebrations, or fending off snow leopards and wolves, he observed and documented their unique lifestyle on the roof of the world. With these tribes, Smutylo found a well-adapted, proud people inextricably tied to the high Himalaya, to their herds of animals and to their 2000 year old culture. Lavishly illustrated with 130 color reproductions of his award winning paintings and etchings, and covered with a full-color dust-jacket, this gorgeous, oversized book addresses the many contemporary dilemmas that are changing this ancient and remote civilization.
About the Author: Allen Smutylo is an honour graduate of Toronto's Ontario College of Art and Design and has worked as a professional artist for the past 37 years. Since the early 80's Smutylo has continually travelled to create his artwork in some of the most remote and desolate places on Earth. Sea-kayaking and backpacking in the Canadian High Arctic, Greenland, Alaska, Patagonia, Antarctica, the Amazon and the Himalaya, is the means in which Smutylo has sought his muse. His paintings, etchings and collages have been shown widely and collected throughout Canada and internationally. His work is in over 300 public and corporate collections around the world. His work has garnered numerous international awards, including the prestigious Sapporo Biennial. He is featured in French filmmaker, Jean Lemire's film, 'The Last Frontier".
