For some people paint is simply a material for others it is a holy book or a constitution but for me it a way to give expression to the instincts from my soul. Observations of Artist Jaya Gaur Painting is a language which I study and try to keep up with it. I struggle to speak it better. I am thrilled when I hear others speak it well. I love visiting different places like villages’ town cities and even countries where it is spoken with its full fluency. I get excited when I discover someone who is adding another layer to its tapestry of possibilities. Continue reading

Kashi to Kathmandu, a creative oasis to a bowl shaped valley in central Nepal was a magical 6 days trip from 1st to 6th of August, 2017. I think getting to know previously undiscovered cultures is a captivating idea for anyone to create something and having greater access to the treasures of long-hidden places with an amazing experience. Art camp supports the talented artisans who are involved to keep their customs alive. That was really a true “win-win” situation when I was selected for this Art Camp. Continue reading

The Kashi to Kathmandu Art Camp was a jubilant experience, providing a platform to harmonize cross-cultural artistic talents. Being my first art camp, it was a great learning opportunity. Meeting people from various artistic disciplines and different regions of not just Nepal, but also India, I felt inspired by the new cultural elements and stories of other participants as well as the communications I had with the local Nepalese people. Visits to sights like the Pashupatinath Temple and the Boudhanath stupa urged me to self-introspect and to re-think the cycle of birth, life and death. While the funeral ghats evoked a feeling of loss and ephemeral of all life, the Stupa instilled a sense of continuum and calm. Continue reading
