Moksananda (Michael Perkin) is a painter and maker of images living just outside Valencia, Spain. He has studied film making with New York based Lights Film School, as well as drawing with Gaia Art Academy in Valencia and painting with Barry John Raybould at the Virtual Art Academy.
With a B.A. in economics, Moksananda trained as a picture-framer, running his own workshop and outlet in Norwich, UK. In 1985 he was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order and later founded the Valencia Buddhist Centre in Spain. For 30 years he worked and travelled extensively in the hispanic world, teaching and supporting others on the Buddhist path.
Dedicated now full-time to painting and image making, his life as a meditator and practising Buddhist feed into his work. His paintings are held in private collections in Spain, Mexico, the UK, Cyprus and Holland.
