The Art of Toby Ouvry

Soul Portraits of Toby Ouvry now available at Gallery Helios

Toby Ouvry is an artist who graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne with a Fine art degree in 1995. After leaving art school he then became very intensively involved in the Tibetan Buddhist school of meditation for nine years, five of which were as an ordained monk. In 2002 he left life as an ordained monk to pursue life in secular society once more. It was at this time that he started to combine his meditation practice with a specific type of painting and drawing that he termed “soul portraits”. You can purchase Toby’s works which are on exhibition at Gallery Helios.
