Kolor Kathmandu, an ambitious initiative by the Sattya Media Arts Collective, sought to metamorphose the streets of Kathmandu into an expansive open gallery, harmonizing modern expressions of Nepal’s creativity with the historical edifices that adorn the cityscape.

By orchestrating a platform that encouraged a myriad of local and international artists to collaborate, exchange ideas, and draw inspiration from the rich cultural tapestry of Nepal, the project breathed new life into the walls of Kathmandu. Each mural represented a unique artistic portrayal, encapsulating the essence of 75 different districts across Nepal.

The “Solukhumbhu” mural, situated in the district of Dhumbarahi, became a captivating canvas reflecting the collective vision and artistic prowess of Kiran Rai and the Sattya Media Arts Collective. It embodied the spirit of Solukhumbhu, contributing to the kaleidoscope of vibrant expressions that define the essence of Nepalese artistry.


The “Solukhumbhu” mural, crafted under the visionary guidance of Kiran Rai and the Sattya Media Arts Collective, stands as a compelling testament to the Kolor Kathmandu project’s endeavor to fuse contemporary artistry with Nepal’s rich cultural heritage, immortalizing diverse expressions within the streets of Kathmandu.
