In 2017, E-Arts Nepal launched the Himalaya Art Festival, an event that has rapidly gained recognition for its exceptional collection and display of Nepali artworks. The festival, which is currently underway, takes a comprehensive, inclusive, and holistic approach to contemporary Nepali art. It accomplishes this by showcasing the creations of one hundred distinct artists, spanning a diverse array of genres including painting, paubha (traditional Nepali scroll painting), sculptures, installations, printmaking, and ceramics.
This event not only serves as a platform for artists to exhibit their works but also fosters a deeper understanding and appreciation of Nepal’s vibrant art scene. The festival includes more than just visual displays; it incorporates interactive elements such as art talks, guided tours, and the prestigious Prashanta Scholarship Award, further enriching the experience for attendees.
The Himalaya Art Festival is a testament to the flourishing creativity within Nepal’s artistic community. By spotlighting a multitude of genres and providing a platform for artistic dialogue, the festival continues to contribute significantly to the country’s cultural landscape.
The Nepal Art Council has initiated a grand art exhibition. In the exhibition, artworks of 80 artists can be observed together on a single platform. The organizing committee, E-Arts Nepal, has informed about this. In the exhibition that began with contemporary painting and sculpture in 2017, a total of 50 artists participated.
