‘Art for Nature’ 4th International Workshop four-day workshop was organized by RFWV (Relief fund for Wildlife Victims) & WWF and coordinated by Art Club Nepal at Parsha National Park, Aadhabhar, Bara district, Province No.2 from 8th – 11th January 2019. During the workshop, artist was given a presentation and talk on the introduction of Parsha National Park and its importance to the preservation of the wild animals. The park has been protecting wild elephant in the number 60-65, Tiger 10, Gauri Gai 105 (wild cow) and Rhino 3-5. The presentation and overall discussion include how the deforestation and urbanization have been affecting the wildlife and their habitat. The policy and governmental development are affecting the wild animals about their daily need, food, water, track. The policy maker and development is less/unaware of the wild animal about their own track, migration from one place to another. They have to pass through multi-lane highway and nearby airport and that is the big challenging for their wildlife in the future.

“Three other works feature a human figure and one of them is a portrait of Mona Lisa, in the aptly named piece, Mona Lisa in My Boat. The iconic figure is sat on a boat that looks like the ones that roam the premises of Phewa Lake. Mona Lisa is donning a haku patasi, and one wonders if she has lost some weight. The Nepali version of the famous painting was first conjured by late Manuj Babu Mishra, and Pariyar says that the work was made as a tribute to the late artist.”
