Arun is actively involved providing support for community groups assisting those devastated by the Earthquakes in 2015. Arun photographed the devastation of the earthquakes in Nepal of 2015. He had an exhibition of these images in Melbourne in 2016. They illustrate the time where people found resilience, even after such devastation and touched the hearts of many Australians when the photographs were shown.

Arun comes from a long line of artists in his family. “Chitrakar” was a title given to artists in Nepal in ancient times and presently, the title stuck to them as last names. In his immediate family, his grandfather was a mask artist who was visited by Queen Elizabeth II, on her visit to Nepal in 1961.

With over 30 years of living in Nepal, Arun brings with him an insight into the lives of the Nepalese people, the history of the country, anecdotes on the places we visit. Besides being knowledgeable about Nepal’s culture, history, places and people, Arun also knows the best places for Nepalese cuisine!
