Meet The Artist: Mrs. Namrata Singh
Namaste, I am Namrata Singh Contemporary Artist from Mahottari, Nepal and currently I am working as freelancer artist in Kathmandu Nepal. I received my Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from TU, Kirtipur Nepal. My artistic process began as a child during frequent excursions to the Terai areas which is rich in varieties of culture and tradition. Now, my primary source of inspiration is from my own life experiences and others in day-to-day life with the flavors of richly diverse subject matters which comes from Mithila Tradition.
In my work mostly my paintings depict the positive aspects of life which inspires me to move forward in my work and life. Strong lines on the figures and dark shade on the faces of the figures represents the different shades in life. On the other side vibrant and bright colors of Mithila art represents the happy, joy, love and inspiring aspects of life full of positivity. On the foreground Mithila motifs and symbols are displayed as the positive and strong character of the subject. In my work the affections between the mother and daughter, the love between husband and wife, the connections between human and nature, these subjects are always hovering around my paintings.
Participation on different workshop and talk program are my field of interest where I am eager to engage myself.
Participation in SAARC Artist camp and Exhibition of Paintings-Nepal 2017 and Revived Emotion Group Art Exhibition, Thailand 2020 was a great experience with different senior national and international artist. So far, my second solo exhibition Fragrance of Life 2 was held in Newa Chen gallery and I was honored by the Title Artist of the Year 2017.
It’s my great pleasure to participate at Mithila Festival USA 2021 exhibition entitled “Art for SDGs; the Mithila Heritage” organized by Mithila Center, USA going to be held on April 14-17, 2021.
I would like to thank you Mithila Center, USA for this wonderful opportunity to show case my art at such important event. I truly believe that, Mithila Festival USA and art exhibition would not only support and promote artist but also help to preserve and promote Mithila culture heritage globally.
To promote social entrepreneurship and support artist, live auction will be also held followed by my solo exhibition and so requesting everyone to participate and support.
