This little girl, who just turned 12, on the last day of her exhibition, is an extremely talented artist at a very young age.
With a growing interest in art since she was three, she commenced painting for the past two years.
This little girl is a box of imagination, expressing her ideas through her paintings. Her art is influenced by Nepal and the Nepali lifestyle, with minute details taken into consideration. In fact the theme of the showcase was Nepal. She had displayed 31 artworks that created in the past two years. Stupas surrounded by prayer flags, many different interpretations of Buddha, an artwork portraying growth of Kathmandu, beautiful depiction of Orchids, Machhapuchhre, typical Nepali house, and more. Her first painting was of a baby Buddha. She has portrayed all of these through her paintings, using many techniques; acrylic, watercolours, oil, pencil, collage, also trying her hands on some 3D art and experimenting with many other techniques.
Her artwork was exhibited at Embers Restaurant from the 22nd to the 24th of April. Almost half of her paintings were sold with in these three days.
I was amazed by the way the little girl explained me all her paintings as she guided me through each of them.
