Koirala Foundation, Embassy Of Nepal, New Delhi, under the tag line of “Kashi To Kathmandu” was unique in its nature and extraordinary in its approach and execution.

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
