Hit Man Gurung

Hit Man Gurung (b. 1986, Nepal) is a mixed media artist that earned his Master’s degree from Tribhuvan University. Most of his works address the mass migration and haphazard urban development, aspects that are consequences of the ten year Maoist civil war and a reflection of an unstable, apathetic government. He uses his paintings, photo collage and installation works with political conviction and personal poetry to relay his message regarding mass labour migration.

His work was shown in a number of group exhibitions including: 2nd Kathmandu International Art Festival; Siddharta Art Gallery; Park Art Gallery, Latitpur; Para Site Art Center, Hongkong; 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT8) in Brisbane, Australia; India Art Fair, 2016; and Dhaka Art Summit, 2016;

He is also the co-founder of Artree Nepal.
