City Focus: Kathmandu

For this week's City Focus, we're taking you to the City of Temples. In the foothills of the Himalayas lies the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu. As it used to be the royal capital, Kathmandu hosts palaces, mansions, gardens of the former Nepalese aristocracy, and seven World Heritage sites. No wonder it is considered to be the center of Nepal's history, art, culture and economyーA perfect place to hold PechaKucha Night, wouldn't you say? Speaking of which, you can catch their PechaKucha Night Kathmandu Vol. 16 on June 25th at Attic.

In 2015, Nepal suffered a catastrophic earthquake. Despite the disaster, the Nepalese people rose above. PechaKucha Night Kathmandu decided to represent their strength in one of their event posters to celebrate creativity in the face of destruction.


Seriously, you guys inspire us. We wish you all the best next week!

We can't wait to see what they've got! Good luck, everyone!

What if the world was made of LEGO?

He discusses how LEGO promotes creativity in STEM education, while still accessing the arts.

REMEMBER Tokyo

BY VASCO MOURÃO
@ VOL 164 ON MAY 28, 2019

Artist Vasco Mourão unveils an ongoing series of artworks on paper that derive from personal recollections of Tokyo’s urbanscape. Drawing in a stream of consciousness with memories flowing and intermingling, he strives to knit together fragments of the urban skin and details from selected locations around the city. In doing so, each drawing can be traced back to a unique place in Tokyo and how he remember/draws its features.


Vasco Mourãoは東京の街並みの1ページから新たなアートを生み出す魔術師。記憶をたどりながら東京の多種多様な街並みを再構築して作り上げた作品一つ一つに、彼の東京への想いがぎゅっとつまっている。作品を紐解けば、彼の東京の街並みの見方が垣間見えるかもしれない。
