Artist Statement

Giving new life to some old newspaper - turning “waste” into beautiful art - brings me great joy and satisfaction. Even with my classical art education and experience, newspaper collage is a challenging medium. After years of practice and experimentation, I am happy to introduce myself as a dedicated newspaper collage artist. My love of birds, animals, and nature is evident in the art I create. Working in this way makes me hopeful and gives me positive energy. I hope it inspires others to think creatively about everyday materials that usually end up as waste.  ~ Raju Lamichhane
