Narayan Bahadur Gurung

Nickname: NB Gurung
Country: Nepal - Role: Artist

NB Gurung is well known artist of Nepal. Though most of his works are in watercolor, he has a body of work in acrylic and oils also. Abstracts, landscapes, cityscape and portraits are his master subjects. His paintings depict the infinite color shades that nature holds. The most exciting factor in his art is the immediacy of the medium and the way the color respond on the paper to his personal emotions. 

Gurung finds watercolor medium as his unique way to present his visual stories by regularly experimenting and constantly pushing the boundaries of what watercolor can do. His colors move, dance and vibrate creating light-filled patches and richly colored transparent darks. His rapidly executed strokes thrill the viewer with its spontaneity, energy and sheer boldness. What may appear as simple execution bears all the complexities of sensitivity.
He has received several national and international awards among which Best Watercolorist/India, Second prize in East-West Watercolor Society/USA, Regional talent awards/Government of Nepal, Hemganga, Youth Talent award and more. He has 5 times solo show to his credit and participated in numerous art exhibitions and workshops in Nepal and abroad.
At present he is the president of International Watercolor Society of Nepal ( IWS-Nepal )
