Nepal Association of Fine Arts

Nepal Association of Fine Arts (NAFA) was founded in 1965 under the chairmanship of late King Birendra while he was crown prince. The establishment of this association and the patronage of the king was the beginning of a renaissance of sorts in the Nepali art world. Most of Nepal’s top artists are members of this association and many maintain their studios within its walls. The Birendra Gallery holds a permanent exhibition while various exhibitions are held in the other halls through the year.
