A week-long art fair in Bangladesh will see the tastes and likes of Nepali art. The art exhibit titled ‘Nepal Art Fair Bangladesh, 2018’ began on Monday 7th May 2018 featuring artworks of 57 Nepali artisans. This initiative came after a 2-year-old agreement was signed between the Nepal Academy of Fine Arts and Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.
The exhibition also includes a conference on fine arts that will bring artists from both Bangladesh and Nepal together. This event witnessed the participation of a nine-member team of Nepali artists (skilled in various genres), who started towards Bangladesh on Sunday. Headed by veteran artist and Chancellor the Nepal Academy of Fine Arts, Ragini Upadhyaya, the team included artists Ramesh Dhwoj Shrestha, AC Suman, Sushma Rajbhandari, Ganesh Kumar GC, Chanda Shrestha, Ranju Yadav, Manoj Tamang, and Kanchakaji Bhasis.
Suported by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, Bangladesh, the event presents a great opportunity for the promotion of Nepali art that has been practiced since old times.
