Hitman Gurung is a multimedia artist based in Kathmandu. His body of work is a direct response to some of the most pressing socio-political issues of the country. Most of Hit Man’s artwork addresses mass migration and haphazard urban development, aspects that are consequences of the ten-year Maoist civil war and a reflection of an unstable, apathetic government. Deeply concerned about the impact of these larger forces on individuals, communities, and societies, Hit Man infuses his paintings, documentary photo collage and installation work with political conviction and personal poetry.
