Travelling up Pulchowk towards the Himalaya Hotel, you can see these murals on the left. That with the snake has only just been added recently.
My last couple of mural posts have featured some murals that adorn the wall that runs along the back of the zoo in Patan, accessed by following the smal road with Vienna Bakery on the corner, near Moksh and Pranamaya yoga studio.
Here are more random murals from that wall.
The following two appear on the wall behind the zoo in Patan.
Artist Dustin Spagnola clearly has a thing for tigers. His Kolor Kathmandu mural, listed in the book but which I haven’t yet found, is also a tiger. The mural below can be found on the side of a building on the upper end of Pulchowk, leading up to Jawalakhel.
I presume the mural below is very new, as it is still clean and isn’t even partially obscured by graffiti or paper fliers. It is on the side of a building at the bottom end of Pulchowk.
This blog was becoming such an outlet for my mural hunting that I felt it was a shame not to share my findings a bit more widely, to better-read publications. A couple of weeks ago I had my article and photo feature published in the online travel magazine, Departful, which you can find here.
I’m back in Kathmandu after an overseas trip, and have immediately got back into the mural hunting. Here are my latest finds. They can all be found on the back wall of the zoo, in Patan. Although not officially part of the Kolor Kathmandu project (at least, they don’t feature in the book), these murals are clearly done by the same artist as some of those in that series, and are located just opposite Sattya’s office, the organisation that coordinated Kolor Kathmandu.
This area behind the zoo is a whole gallery of murals of different types, more of which I will share in the coming days.
