John Bukaty has been the drive behind

Kartma for more than a decade.


John’s journeys have taken him all over the world – to the far reaches of India painting under a Bodhi tree, to being on stage next to music legend J.J. Cale, to a front row seat at the epic Kansas-Missouri 2012 basketball game where he dazzled the crowd with his exciting, spontaneous approach to painting. Whatever the occasion may be, John brings with him a spirit of inspiration and improvisation that captures the soul of what’s going on around him.
