While ordering Danger Dog signs yesterday, we walked the streets of Kathmandu looking for good 'Beware of the Dog' signs. Here is an old friend near the Chabahil area of Kathmandu.
If you would like to immortalize your pet and help struggling Nepali signboard artists at the same time... now is your chance! I am here in Kathmandu currently taking orders and will give each commission to 3 artists who will paint your pet on metal, giving you 3 choices and 3 artists work.
Each sign is approximately one square foot, synthetic enamel on often recycled metal. They can be hung indoors or out.
Any questions or comments are welcome. You can leave them below or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Nepal Art Dog project also has a website at NepalDog.com. There you can find the various artists, their style of art, costs and what's available if you'd like to purchase an existing signboard.
This is a fair trade art project determined to promote signboard art in Nepal before it completely disappears. Micro-finance through art patronage. We are giving these artists a rod not a fish.
Danger Dogs (or Cats) make the perfect gift for pet lovers who collect art and would like to make a difference.
