#danfeartsupports: A Lockdown Initiative

#danfeartsupports is an initiative inspired by a Mumbai-based collective, Carpe Arte.

We are all living in uncertain times and there is much at stake for our local art community. We want to use our gallery to support our art ecosystem

We will share works of four artists over the week, all priced at Rs 5000 and under. Each week will bring to you works varying in size, medium and styles followed by an Instagram takeover by the artists on the weekend.

If anyone is interested in buying any of the works, pls DM us and we will connect you with the artist.

We will NOT be making any money through this, all proceeds will go directly to the artist. All artworks will be delivered after the lockdown.

The above text was used to promote the work of local artists through our Instagram page during the lockdown with a goal to support our artist community during such times of crises. We completed eight weeks of the initiative, forming a network of 48 artists and raising about seventy thousand through the initiative. The initiative brought great appreciation from the art community and even saw a potential young collector community surging in Nepal. A second edition to this initiative is underway!
