American artist Mike Lilly has teamed up with Animal Nepal and Pledge Nepal to organise a one month art exhibition featuring recent works that highlight the interaction between humans and animals. The show was opened today by Dr Kevin Rushing, USAID Mission Director, at Chai Chai Gallery.
Mike Lilly is an American artist who moved to Nepal in 2008. He did his MFA at San Fransisco Art Academy. Since arriving in Kathmandu he worked as a Visual Art Coordinator at Ullens School. These days his aim is to empower children in need. Lilly’s recent work focuses on animals. “I got inspired by the work of my wife at Animal Nepal, an organization that reaches out to working donkeys and their child handlers, as well as stray dogs and cows.”
