Art is something that I do to live as well as to make a living. Art has helped me cope with my loneliness during my childhood which was led by my introversion and still is helping me evolve and become a better version of me. It is my means of self-actualization. For me, art is a power and we all know that with great power comes great responsibility. So with my art, I always try to be more responsible and raise my voice against injustice and try to make my art the voice of voiceless beings. I have always been open to learning new mediums of art and excited to collaborate with different sectors like physical health, mental health, education, etc. I usually use oil and acrylics as my main medium of painting and use my digital tools for design and illustrations. I have also participated in multiple international workshops on virtual reality, augmented reality, and generative graphics from the Gray Area Festival, San Francisco. I have participated in many national exhibitions and a few international exhibitions including “Ring Project: Metaphors of Island”, Jakarta Biennale 2021, National Museum of Indonesia. In 2021-2022, I also got to work for the biggest art festival of Nepal “Kathmandu Triennial 2077”, National Art Council, Babermahal as an artist as well as an exhibition design team member. Some of my paintings are in the private collection of the Museum of Nepali Arts and the Judicial Museum of Nepal. Below I have mentioned different art exhibitions and events that I have been part of.

Our platform provides carefully curated access to artworks selected by art experts, guaranteeing a selection of the highest quality.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.

Personal Statement & Vision and Goals


Art has always been an integral part of my life, serving as a medium of self-actualization. From a tender age, I began dreaming and drawing as a way to cope with my introversion and loneliness. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my hand dance on a canvas, leaving my mark behind. Initially, I painted solely for pleasure, but everything changed on April 25, 2015, when a massive and deadly earthquake struck Nepal. That day of destruction taught me about the power of creation, and I began using art as a tool to express deep emotions and awaken awareness in others. My paintings are always an amalgamation of my ideas and emotions, blended with imagination.

As a female visual artist living in a traditional patriarchal society, I have consistently sought to raise awareness against social injustice through my art. I create pieces inspired by social issues to promote change in a society where ancient traditions have subjugated women and limited their opportunities for advancement. I strongly believe in the power of art to bring about change, to motivate viewers, and to transform one's sense of self. Art is a visual language that connects us and creates new dimensions of communication.

I am particularly sensitive to issues such as inequality, gender violence, menstruation taboos, female infanticide, human trafficking, and rape—issues that are highly significant in Nepal. Recently, I have also been raising awareness about environmental issues as well as mental health awareness through my art. I am involved in various art aid programs that educate students in an immersive and playful manner.

My artistic journey is driven by a steadfast commitment to raising awareness about social injustice and advocating for equality and humanity. Each piece I create serves as a visual narrative, challenging societal norms and inspiring dialogue about the need for change and compassion. Through my art, I strive to create a space where imagination meets reality, encouraging viewers to reflect, question, and ultimately embrace a more just, peaceful and humane world for all the living beings.


Vision 

My vision is to use art as a transformative tool to bridge divides and foster understanding among diverse communities. I envision a world where art transcends boundaries, serving as a catalyst for social change and personal growth. By addressing pressing social and environmental issues through my work, I aim to contribute to a more equitable and sustainable future.


Goals 

– Advocacy: Continue to use my art to raise awareness about critical social and environmental issues, influencing public opinion and inspiring action. 

- Education:Expand my involvement in art aid programs, developing new initiatives that educate and empower young people through creative expression and interaction. 

-Collaboration: Foster collaborations with other artists, activists, and organizations to amplify the impact of art in addressing societal challenges. 


 Artistic Ambitions

 - Exhibitions: Curate and participate in exhibitions that highlight the intersection of art and activism, showcasing works that provoke thought and inspire change. 

- Public Art Projects: Create large-scale public art installations that engage communities and bring attention to social justice and environmental issues.

 - Innovation: Experiment with new mediums and techniques, integrating traditional and digital art forms to push the boundaries of artistic expression. 


Future Goals 

- Global Reach:  Extend the reach of my art beyond Nepal, participating in international residencies and exhibitions to share my vision with a global audience. 

- Institutional Influence:  Continue my work with the Supreme Court of Nepal and giving visual shape to legal documents so that general public get awareness about law and regulations.

 - Mentorship: Mentor emerging artists, particularly women and those from marginalized communities, providing guidance and opportunities to help them succeed in the art world. Through these endeavors, I am committed to creating art that not only reflects my personal journey but also contributes to a broader movement towards justice, equality, and humanity.
