Pulkit, of Nepal Arts, has a studio in the Tripureshwor district of Kathmandu. He represents a couple of artists.
This artist to the left’s work was Munch-like with a naïve, wavy flowing look to the work. Other artists in his studio are more detailed.
There are about a dozen artist studios in the Tripureshwor area – many very good. However, when they agreed on a due date of a Wednesday, and I came to pick up on a Friday, only 4 of 12 studios were ready. A couple hadn’t even started.
‘Ke garne?’ (‘What to do?’ in Nepali.)
That is one reason that every Danger Dog commission gets at least 3 choices by 3 different artists. It is commendable that they pass the work from artist to artist if they are busy or someone else needs the work, but it’s hard to count on anything. And it’s great fun to find new artists, even when unexpected.
Please stay tuned for more finals to come! If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken, bunny, bearded dragon, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, it is now too late.
I will return in the autumn of 2022, leaving plenty of time to deliver holiday gifts.
You choose the style, the color, what you would like the sign to say... You can also check out NepalDog.com, as I have over 72 breeds of dog (and counting) and many cats.
I pay fair trade wages, the artists get to paint again, pet lovers get a choice of three paintings for each commission, and I get to help Nepali artists make a living.
Everybody is happy. Rescue dogs from America get to rescue artists from Nepal!
HOW TO ORDER: To order, please send me a photo of your pet. I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of 3 paintings and three artists will get work. Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint. These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.
While I am in Nepal, your pet will be featured on the Danger Dog Blog, as I stop into the artists' studios and document the works in progress.
Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front. If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case. Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!
Send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.
Let's keep these artists painting. American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
