This study explores the working artistic life of a soon-to-be graduate of Kathmandu University School of Arts, Dipak Lama. Fieldwork was conducted in the Patan-area of Kathmandu while all of the studio-work was completed in Hattiban on the KU campus. This project attempts to provide a broad overview of how Dipak creates a model of a work with the hopes of having the full-size piece commissioned as public art.
