Some artists repeat the same subject matter, figure and technique throughout their life or from the beginning of their profession till now. The presentation of the same thing all the time creates monotony and nausea in the viewers. The question arises: how can an artist do the same thing all the time? Some artists see the works of famous western artists in art history books, art magazines and the world wide web, and they copy their subject matters and techniques thinking that they can create works and be famous. Some artists randomly splash and pour colors on the canvas and say that the mess and confusion in the canvas is abstract art. They opine that nobody can understand abstract art. They are fooling the viewers. Some artists call themselves modern Nepali artists, for they have practiced modern techniques of western arts. Some artists print the photograph on the canvas, make the photograph rough using paints and call it their paintings thinking that the viewers will be fooled. Some artists do realistic paintings with sweats and tireless efforts to earn their livelihood but when it comes to the exhibition of artworks, they make abstract paintings in few minutes. We can find such naïve and shocking trends in some senior artists as well, and young artists following their footprints. As a result, a substantial portion of Nepali art has already entered the whirlpool presenting its non-existent situation which demands immediate rescue from real artists and intellectuals. The scenario of art can be an analogy of the social and political situation of Nepal. We talk about great revolutions, changes and achievements but the situation of people is getting worse and civilization has been degenerated.</p> Yam Prasad Sharma Copyright (c) 2021 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2021-12-31 2021-12-31 3 1 1 5 10.3126/jfac.v3i1.42488 Effectiveness of educational virtual class during Covid-19- with reference of Music online class of Fine Arts Campus, TU <p>As the Covid19 pandemic started, COVID infected nations announced to keep physical distance, affected all the human activities, as a result, educational institutions closed physically.

Light not only brings forth the existence of color but also helps to perceive its reality. Color is a powerful medium to express our feelings, and that also evokes emotional responses which attract and keep the attention of a beholder. Color combination in painting is concerned with aesthetic aspects. The color beauty sustains the undivided attention to the beholder. Color amplifies the degree of emotion that touches and influences the human body, mind and soul directly which leads towards contemplation. The contemplation opens up the way to the journey of eternity. All this is possible through the combination of harmonious and contrastive colors that awakens a corresponding sensation, which directly works upon the soul. Therefore, color is the spirit of painting that makes the work of painting lively by putting breath into it. This article, thus, attempts to trace how color becomes the spirit of painting. Color as the spirit of painting will be the center of research focusing on the influence of color upon human beings. The main objective of this article is to study the role of color in painting. The study explains the impact and aesthetic value of color in painting. It is relevant to explore the strength of color application in painting. The qualitative model of research is adopted to analyze and interpret the artworks.</span></p> Krishna Prakash Shah Copyright (c) 2021 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2021-12-31 2021-12-31 3 1 15 22 10.3126/jfac.v3i1.42491 Origin, Development, Classification and Historicity of Ancient Percussion Instruments <p class="Default"><span style="font-size: 10.0pt;">Music has a prominent place in fine arts. This art has been considered as a means of spiritual satisfaction. Apart from material excellence and fame, music has an important place in all the different ways of devotion or worship in India. There have been two main types of worship since ancient times as Vedic and Tantric. The <em>Avanaddha </em>instrument maintains the rhythm in singing, dancing and instrument-playing. Different opinions, legends, stories, statements of the origin of instruments are prevalent but differences are found in them. The article describes the method and material of ancient <em>Avanaddha </em>instruments on the basis of various texts. Thereafter, under the classification of instruments opinion of various scholars on <em>Tat, Ghan, Sushir</em>, and <em>Avanaddha </em>instruments and the various classifications have been mentioned and discussed in detail. The origin and association of ancient <em>Avanaddha </em>instruments is described with reference to various deities. The article lists ancient and medieval <em>Avanaddha </em>instruments. The use of instruments by gods, demons, human beings in various ceremonies, events, worship lessons, war sites, on auspicious occasions is evidently shown with their importance, use and antiquity. A musical instrument with serious sound was used at warrior sites and <em>Yagna</em>. From different sources like; ancient texts &amp; other facts, it can be concluded that since ancient times eastern musical instruments have been used in music right from the beginning of the era. <em>Avanaddha vadya </em>were invented to support the singer, accompany his song, engage his mind more, cover up his faults, and measure his singing activity in <em>Taal</em>.</span></p> Pravin Uddhav Copyright (c) 2021 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2021-12-31 2021-12-31 3 1 23 30 10.3126/jfac.v3i1.42492 Distortion of Forms and Subjects in Paul Cezanne’s Paintings <p>Paul Cezanne is the 19th century painter born in France who was a very important figure in the history of modern art. He had painted so many paintings like landscapes, portraits and still life. The figures and forms in his artwork do resemble the real world but the distortion is the most significant feature. The subject matters reveal the changes and gives emphasis upon forms. Subjects lack likeness and negate imitation as art followed by predecessors. The flatness and geometric forms are amplified along with expression in the paintings. The formal distortion played a vital role to give birth to Modernism in 20th century Western Art. So, he is called “Father of Modern Art”.</p> Nem Bahadur Tamang Copyright (c) 2021 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2021-12-31 2021-12-31 3 1 31 34 10.3126/jfac.v3i1.42493 Art in nature: Shifting trends in Nepali sculpture <p>Art has its environment and meaning, and it can exist free from a pedestal. Different approaches have sprung up with current environmental impacts, including other outdoor sculptures in Nepal as a modern movement. This form of activity has given new meaning to local indigenous values, art, and crafts. The transition started after some naturalistic sculptures, including equestrian statues, were brought from Europe and installed in the open environment. Environmental sculpture is a type of public art that creates or changes the spectators' surroundings. Nepalese sculptors have practiced a new genre as an alternative discipline of sculpture. A significant sculpture, Nirmāna, which means construction, was created by Thakur Prasad Mainali in 2024-25 B.S. at Bhirkutimandap, Kathmandu. Hence, two methodological approaches-primary observation and historical connections used to conduct this study. Besides numerous modern sculptures, this investigation focused on the earliest environmental sculptures. The study also explores the historical significance of sculpture in Nepal as it evolved and assimilated into modernity over time. After centuries of artistic and cultural legacy in Nepal, environmental sculpture underwent new changes.</p> Om Khattri Copyright (c) 2021 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2021-12-31

मार्फत सरकारी पो्रत्साहनमा अगाडी बढाउन खोजिएको पाइन्छ भने मल्लकालमा विभिन्न जात्रा, पर्व, नाटक आदिमा शास्त्रीय सँगीत गायन, वादन र नाचको प्रयोग हुन्थ्यो । उन्नाइसौं शताब्दीको सुरुवात सँगै भारतका अलग

विद्यावारिधिको<br>लागि भारतकै विश्वविद्यालयहरू एक मात्र विकल्प थियो । वर्तमानमा नेपालमै संगीत विषयमा स्नातक, स्नातकोत्तर एवं विद्यावारिधि<br>सम्मको अध्ययन अध्यापन हुन थालेको छ । त्यस समयमा मन्चमा हुने प्रदर्शनलाई नै परीक्षा मान्ने चलन थियो । संगीतमा क्रियात्मक<br>पक्षलाई मात्र जोड दिइएका कारण धेरै विद्वानहरूको कुनै प्रकारको अभिलेख नपाइएको अवस्था रहेको छ । पुराना पुस्ता क्रियात्मक पक्षमा मात्र कार्य गर्नुहुने भएकाले अनुसन्धानात्मक लेखन कार्यको कमि भएको मान्न सकिन्छ । यस लेखले विभिन्न विश्वविद्यालयबाट संगीतका विभिन्न विषयमा शिक्षा प्राप्त जनशक्तिको बारेमा एवं वर्तमान अवस्थाका बारेमा सबैलाई जानकारी हुनेछ । वर्तमान अवस्था, चुनौती एवं योगदान आदि यस लेखमा सूक्ष्म रूपमा दर्शाउन खोजिएको छ । भविष्यमा अनुसन्धानका लागि पुराना जनशक्तिको नाम खोज्न धेरै समय नलाग्ने कुरामा लेख सहयोगि हुने बिस्वास छ । नेपालमा संगीत विषयमा विद्यावारिधि गर्ने प्रचलन भर्खर–भर्खर मात्र सुरुवात भएको हो । हालसम्म सांगीतिक क्षेत्रमा कतिजनाले उपाधि प्राप्त गर्नु भएको छ लेखबाट थाहा पाउन सकिन्छ । वर्णनात्मक शैलीको लेखबाट
