Siddhartha Art Gallery, Kathmandu Overview

Siddhartha Art Gallery, home to a wide range of contemporary Nepali art, was established with the intention of providing a platform to the native artists for displaying their works. For the past twenty years, the gallery has been continuously striving to promote contemporary art in Nepal and work as a catalyst for change to support the artists. They also provide services for the investor in art through evaluation and restoration of artefacts. It is the best place to be for art lovers and for those who wish to know and understand the history of the evolution of Nepalese art.

The gallery was established in 1987 by Shashikala Tiwari who is an internationally recognised artist from Nepal. It was found with the intention of having a contemporary space and a platform to meet other artists not just from Nepal but the world over. Over the past twenty years, about 315 exhibitions have been held at the Gallery. These include art created by artists from several countries. Some of the eminent personalities that have exhibited their work include Karna Narsingh Rana, Ragini Upadhya Grela, Amar Chitrakar, Tej Bahadur, Uttam Nepali and Shashikala Tiwari herself.
