MY ALMA MATER(S)
I completed BFA in 2001 at Fine Art College, Bhotahiti and MFA in 2012 from Central Department of Fine Art, Tribhuvan University, Kirtipur.
I studied Creative Painting.
I was very sincere and innocent student. I always loved drawing and wanted to be a master of drawing/painting.
BEST OF COLLEGE LIFE
When I started collage, I didn’t know about still life painting and art. However,
studying art and being able to learn art and paint full life study in oil colour is the best part of my college life.
I was also a volleyball player during my BFA days. We had the exam of etching print but I could not finish all my prints because of the volleyball match. So, I just got pass marks in etching.
If you have to get success in life, work continuously. For
example, the continuous dropping of water on a rock can pierce a hole in it.
WORDS TO HEED
Be sincere, update yourself and maintain your discipline. Respect your teachers and seniors.
HOW TO ACE IN COLLEGE
Success does not come to you, you have to go get it. For that you seriously need to work hard, only then can your dreams come true.
