ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

GovindaLal Singh Dongol (b 1945) began his artistic journey in his early years and in 1971, he completed his GDA from the Sir JJ School of Art in Mumbai, India. There he was able to define and sharpen his artistic skills which are now evident in the exquisite craftsmanship and dexterity of his fine art works.

Dongol is well-known for his paintings of divinities, most notably of Lord Ganesh and his multiple avatars and mounts. He was initially inspired by Indian paintings of deities and thus, began to paint them in his own artistic style and has been highly successful. Besides portraying divinities, Dongol also creates landscapes, still-life, portraits and non-representational abstract paintings using a range of materials from oil, acrylics and water color to charcoal and pencil. He also uses collage techniques in his works.

Dongol has contributed to the development of Nepali arts as a Standing Committee Member for the Humanities Department at Tribhuvan University and has assisted in developing the curricula of the painting programs. Along with his years of teaching art, his tenure as the Campus Chief at Lalit Kala Campus is also notable. Dongol’s works are collected nationally and internationally and recently, he was honored with the National Prize of 2017.
