Erina & Asha Dangol:

In the world of Nepalese contemporary art there are few as famous and respected as the duo of Asha Dangol and Erina Tamrakar. Both were born at Mangalbazaar in Lalitpur nearby a family of traditional artists. While Dangol’s work conveys various themes with a strong social and environmental message combining facets of both modern art and traditional motifs making the viewer ponder on these issues, Tamrakar’s portrait work conveys themes of femininity, motherhood, suffering and peace which touches one’s emotional core.

Raj Prakash Man Tuladhar:

Born near Naradevi Temple in Kathmandu, Raj Prakash Man Tuladhar’s life has been drenched in culture and faith. He recalls listening to stories told by his grandmother as a child, stories of Avalokiteshvara, the story of Indra coming to Kathmandu, stories of his ancestral trade to Tibet. As he listened, the words would translate from speech to pictures in his mind, as if watching a movie. Each statue, temple, jatra, festival had its own story, its own reason for existence. All them have contributed in some way to Tuladhar’s identity as an artist now.

Manish Dhoju

Born in 1999 AD to a family without any exposure to the arts, young Dhoju found himself being praised by his classmates for his drawings of pictures found in his textbooks. For Dhoju, the praise he received each time he drew became the drive-through which he would find the courage and discipline to take on hyper-realism as an art style. Hyper-realism aims to model a subject as accurately as possible, such that the subject becomes almost indistinguishable from the art. Each stroke, each shade has to have meaning and goal, there is no room for error in hyperrealism, and that excellence is exactly what Dhoju’s artwork shows.

Arnav Man Singh:

Art has a lot of expressions. These expressions are not defined by anything, they do not have rules, guidelines, plans, or patterns. They come out from pain, pressure, misunderstanding, desires, and a kind of unfathomable need to mark one’s presence.
