Additional information
  • On the Way to Meet the King is a mixed media drawing depicting a unique, abstract design, slightly resembling that of a cave painting, featuring several Tibetan-inspired figures and motifs that have been crafted using gold toned metallic ink on black paper with a hand colored background in shades of orange and yellow.  The artist, Laliberté, is best known for his wide range of talents including everything from painting, printmaking and sculpting to teaching and writing – who is the author of over twenty different books on contemporary art.

    This amazing work is hand signed and dated by the artist in the upper left margin. The print is housed behind acrylic glass in a wooden frame with a gold gilt finish to the front and a wire for hanging to the verso.
