Buddha Board // Water Painting

Buddha Board is inspired by the Zen idea of living in the moment. You simply paint on the surface with water and your creation will come to life in bold design. Then as the water slowly evaporates, your art will magically disappear leaving you with a clean slate and a clear mind, ready to create a whole new masterpiece…

Let’s be honest, it’s pretty stressful being a freelance designer or artist! The Buddha Board is an amazing way to take a break from deadlines, social media, emails and clients. Designed on the Buddhist monk premise of ‘nothing is permanent’, the act of painting something that is entirely impermanent and only for yourself is a form of meditation.


When you spend every day designing and creating artwork that carries such permanence, importance and weight to it, it is hard to live in the moment and appreciate the value of the presence. This is what Buddha Board is trying to help you with. It’s extremely therapeutic, but also as creatives, it’s just very cool and fun…

The design of the Buddha Board is very minimal and functional. The design consists of the board which sits atop a simple black tray which you fill with water. The tray is designed so that the paintbrush can sit elegantly on top of it, for ease of use. The Buddha Board is a simple and contemporary take on eastern design which looks beautiful within the home or office.
