Over the last few years, Nepal, especially Kathmandu, has undergone a significant morph in terms of art and culture. The public places that had previously remained empty or occupied by a political party’s logos, slogans and pamphlets have now been replaced by artistic and conceptual murals and frescos. Likewise, there has also been a commendable work in the resurgence, promotion and preservation of culture and its art form of expressions. Today, there are many art hubs, exhibitions, festivals, and collaborations with international artists in Kathmandu Valley. This is possible because artists are willing to invest their time and talent to beautify and claim the spaces through their social and political art commentary.
Kathmandu Triennale, Berger Paints entered into a partnership for Kathmandu Triennale 2077 International Art Exhibition to jointly promote art and culture across the globe. Kathmandu Triennale is organized every three years, where artists from all around the world gather and exhibit their artworks. The extensive event includes 300 artworks by 100 artists from over 40 countries exhibited across 5 different venues of cultural & historical significance in Kathmandu. The venues are Taragaon Museum, Siddhartha Art Gallery, Bahadur Shah Baithak, Patan Museum and Siddhartha Art Council.
In addition, to promote colours and art, Kathmandu Triennale and Berger Paints Nepal will jointly organize art competitions in this art festival where Berger Nepal will provide paint colours to artists.
In a nutshell, Berger Paints Nepal has always been an ardent supporter of art and culture. It has always initiated its share in promoting art, preserving and retaining the beauty of culture, and it will continue to do so.
