Tonight in Williamsburg Brooklyn drop by Immersive Gallery for a rare chance to view works for the first time in NYC by some of Nepal’s best known, and up and coming street artists. Names like Sadhu-X and Deadline may not be familiar to the American street art community now, but it’s inevitable with their quality of work for them to be mentioned in the near future with artists like Faile, Invader, & Bast.
The City Museum located in Kathmandu has transported a very limited number of prints and originals straight from Nepal to be viewed tonight and tomorrow only! The City Museum is the only urban art museum in Nepal who has been commissioning street art murals and works regularly since last year.
Tonight’s pop-up gallery will feature works from Nepelis street artists Sandhu-X, Deadline, Devotee, Mekh Limbu, Hitman Gurung, & Kailash.
In particular there has been a lot of global buzz behind Nepal’s Sadhu-X who New York Times described as Nepal’s most influential street artist. His work can be described as a mix of Banksy style stencil images of police, animals that are mixed with bright pop colors and traditional Nepelis imagery.
Other featured artists like Deadline & Devotee share the common thread of the use of classical Nepolis imagery, but deviate greatly in style incorporating other urban aspects such as pop art monkey men & famous figures from Nepal.
Head over to 132 Bedford Ave. (@N 9th St.) in Williamsburg Brooklyn tonight and be the first to check out the best street art from Nepal. The pieces are reasonably priced and span several mediums. This might be your only chance to snatch up one of these works at these entry level prices!!
