American artist Man One to join street art project with local artists in Nepal
KATHMANDU, Nov 28: Renowned street artist Alejandro Poli Jr (Man One) from Los Angeles, California is set to conduct a twelve-day program to promote and celebrate the voices of minority and socially excluded communities.
According to a statement issued by the US Embassy in Kathmandu, Man One will organize a street art project to showcase Nepal’s vibrant multicultural society through art jointly with local artists in Kathmandu and Janakpur.
A group of Nepali muralists, graffiti artists, folk, traditional artists, and creative practitioners, will participate in a live art showcase on November 28. Similarly, Nepali artists will jointly work with Man One next week on a final mural design that captures the visions for minority inclusion. A final large-scale mural will be revealed on December 9.
Man One will also conduct interactive lectures on the themes of social inclusion and equity and share both their own work and the history of graffiti as “protest art.”
Nepali artists participating in the project include Bishal Manandhar, Ishan Rai, Khem Bahadur Palpali, Kiran Maharjan, Komal Purbey, Manisha Shah, Sarita Mandal, Suchin Shrestha, Sudeep Balla and Tseten Sherpa.
