Mukti Singh Thapa

Mukti Singh Thapa is one of Nepal's foremost traditional painters and is credited with reviving the Newar Design style from the 13th - 16th centuries. He is a master of the iconography and styles of this period, as well as the Tibetan style that originated in the 17th century and is still popular today. For each thangka, or paubha in Nepali, he designs his own original composition rather than simply copying old works. Thapa uses age-old painting techniques and paints exclusively in mineral and vegetable pigments. His rich color palette, precise lines, complex designs and unparalleled creativity have brought him acclaim in Nepal and around the world.
