An exhibition by Nepali artist Soham (Sabin Sainju) titled ‘The Bright Episode’ is being held at the Cemara 6 Galeri Museum in Jakarta, Indonesia from July 27 to August 3 from 10 AM to 8PM.

Soham says, “The characters in difficult situations and their resilience in overcoming them and moving forward toward a brighter side of their lives is the main inspiration in my work. A common theme in all of my paintings is that they illustrate happiness, joy and bright aspects of children’s lives.” He adds, “I am also inspired with the idea that positive thoughts attract positive life situations, such as success, abundance of luck and prosperity, in one’s life which I have reflected in the paintings.”

Having worked for underprivileged children in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Indonesia for more than 10 years, Soham was intrigued to tell children’s stories on canvas. The 17 oil paintings exhibited in the gallery depict children’s struggles, resilience and aspiration, as well as their transition toward a new episode of their lives.

Soham’s self-titled painting exhibition has a range of varied colors representing the children’s happiness, while reflecting the diversity of children around the world who are full of hopes and dreams. Each composition includes dominant hues like purple, blue, brown, green and orange which encompass a combination of figurative and abstract lines.

Soham pursued his passion for art by earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts at the Lalit Kala Campus, Tribhuvan University, in Kathmandu, Nepal. His childhood dreams of having his paintings displayed in public abroad came true 15 years later when he debuted his first solo exhibition at Nepal Art Council Gallery in Kathmandu, prior to which he showcased his paintings at the Everest Art Gallery in Kathmandu and participated in a number of group exhibitions in Nepal.
