Berkeley College is presenting the artwork of artist Shyam Sunder Yadav at its Midtown Manhattan Gallery. The exhibit is on display Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM and on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Shyam Sunder Yadav was raised in Kathmandu, Nepal, where he said his art was inspired by his culture and civilization. He enrolled in the Fine Arts Campus of Kathmandu where he focused on Mithila folk art, which is painting with fingers, twigs, brushes, and matchsticks, using natural dyes and pigments, and characterized by eye-catching geometrical patterns.
Mr. Yadav trained for four years and began exhibiting his work. He found an appreciative audience and was awarded the Special National Award at Kathmandu’s International Exhibition in 2004. That gave him encouragement to open the Mithila Yain Art Gallery in Kathmandu.
“It was the best decision to open the gallery,” said Mr. Yadav. “This was another opportunity to grow and also to increase tourism in our area. Thousands of people got to see my work, and I am now beginning to exhibit in the United States as well as other countries.”
“Mr. Yadav is another international artist to be exhibited by the gallery in our efforts to bring in artists from around the world,” said Robert Keiber, Berkeley College Curator, Midtown Manhattan Gallery. “His colorful work is magical, and I’m sure all who come to see our exhibit will agree.”
