Imagine aka Sneha Shrestha
Sneha Shrestha is an artist and educator from Kathmandu, Nepal. Sneha “IMAGINE” Shrestha has established herself as Nepali artist painting in the streets meshing the Nepali alphabet with inspiration from the Boston graffiti scene. Imagine has redefined the Nepali alphabet and given it a new identity through graffiti.
Being the first to mesh American Graffiti with Nepali Alphabets, she has shown her work in several exhibitions, commissioned works and public walls around the world including Boston, Oakland, Bali, Istanbul and Miami. She has worked on projects for Trip Advisor, Red Bull and Neiman Marcus. Her works can be described as thoughtful yet irreverent pieces, marrying the beauty of an elegant script with the droll text she often incorporates into her canvases.
Sneha has been accepted to the Harvard Graduate School of Education to receive her Masters in Education.
She established Nepal’s first Children’s Art Museum to provide a creative space where children and youth can get hands-on art experience and are encouraged to express themselves creatively. Children’s Art Museum of Nepal is the first of its kind space in Nepal.
