Sneha Shrestha is also known as IMAGINE in the art world and has established herself as Nepali street artist meshing the Nepali alphabet and the Boston graffiti scene. Imagine has redefined the Nepali alphabet and given it a new identity through graffiti. Being the first to mesh American Graffiti with Nepali Alphabets, she has shown her work in several exhibitions, commissioned works and public walls around the world including Boston, San Francisco, Bali, Istanbul, Geneva and Copenhagen. Her works can be described as thoughtful yet irreverent pieces, marrying the beauty of an elegant script with the mindful mantras she often incorporates into her canvases. When not painting these intricate pieces, Sneha paints bold larger than life walls.
