Within the framework of the 70 year celebrations of Franco-Nepali bilateral relations and amity, Alliance Française Kathmandu hosted a painting exhibition of four contemporary artists from the two countries from July 16 to July 31. The artists featured in the exhibition included Kiran Manandhar, Vincent Greby, Sagar Manandhar, and BK Nar Bahadur. Even though the four painters use different techniques, they are united by their attempt to delve into colors and materials as a universal language. The inauguration of the exhibition was presided over by HE François-Xavier Léger, the Ambassador of France to Nepal.
