What is Living Canvas?
It comprises art pieces worn on the human body instead of being hung on walls.

Living Canvas is created by utilizing different locally found mediums, such as brass, bronze, copper, wood, bamboo, beads, canvas, textiles, bells, shells, mirrors, dried leaves and so forth. Painted on, sewn, pasted and/or woven together artists form three dimensional pieces of living art. With the final art piece you have two opinions: wear it or hang it on a wall.

Created in 2006 by Deneth Piumakshi(Sri Lanka) and Kasthmandap Art Studio (Asha, Binod, Bhairaj, Erina, Prdeep, Prmila and Sunila), Living Canvas was the first attempt to promote the contemporary art, culture and music of Nepal. Living Canvas is an event that blends history, culture, and individual artistic designs all in one form of "live art". Inspirations and new dimensions harmonize to create a fusion of art and fashion, past and present.
