The Himalayan Art Festival 2020 has been canceled due to COVID 19. Himalayan Art Festival was initiated by E-Arts Nepal in 2017 with the hope of the finest collection of Nepali artworks. Today, the festival embraces a comprehensive, inclusive and holistic approach towards contemporary Nepali art by presenting works of more than one hundred fifty different artists that represent a multitude of genres and mediums - paintings, paubha, sculptures, installations, photographs, printmaking, ceramic, as well as live performances.

The five-day-long festival is full of various art activities such as Musical Performances, Art Talks/Panel Discussion, Kids Art Education Program, live performances from contemporary artists, theatre artists, and Kathak dancers, and ceramic firing workshops.

The festival has created a Nepalese Art platform for local collectors/buyers as well as to encourage Nepali corporate houses to invest in Nepali art. This annual event also creates a platform to raise awareness of the different art practices in Nepal.

The festival has been organized by E-Arts Nepal, an online art gallery that was established in 2010 to promote contemporary Nepali art in the global market.

E-Arts Nepal is continuously working with positivity in its stride to keep abreast of whatever holds in the future. We are working towards a better website, one that is user friendly for all, to continue collaborating with different Nepali artists and their works of expression all in one platform. ( We will keep you updated on our progress on this.
