Rajendra Shakya appointed to lead Nepal Art Village

Rajendra Shakya appointed to lead Nepal Art Village


Nepal Art Village, a company which aims to promote artisan families of Nepal to live and display their masterpieces, lost its President Raj Kumar Shakya- a well known repousse artist to COVID-19 on June 5, 2021.

According to a press statement released by Nepal Art Village, Raj Kumar’s art creations can be seen all over Nepal and globally. The Swayambhu stupa replica at the German expo, the colossal statue of Padmasambhava in Bhutan, the tall Buddha statue at Lumbini are just three examples of Raj Kumar’s creative work.

The press statement said that four years ago Raj Kumar Shakya came to the realization that many artists like him create masterpieces and send them to the clients which then are not seen or heard of again. There is no location nearby that the artist can go to and show their creation. Out of this dilemma came the idea to craft and install the world’s largest standing mask of the Sweta Bhairab at the southern end of the Kathmandu Valley and to build the Nepal Art Village around it. The idea won a lot of support and the mask is now about 60% complete. Nepal Art Village has the obligation to complete this dream of Raj Kumar Shakya.

With the determination to complete Raj Kumar’s wish, the Nepal Art Village has appointed Rajendra Shakya to lead the company. Rajendra is an established artist in the lost wax technique. He has also proven himself to be a successful entrepreneur and owns and manages Hotel Ananda at Lumbini.
