Graffiti for good

Sneha Shrestha ’10, a studio art and globalization studies major, was featured as an artist (under the alias “Imagine”) for Reebok’s Artist Collective collection. Shrestha’s work meshes Sanskrit scriptures and American graffiti. In addition to Reebok, her work has been commissioned by Harvard, TripAdvisor, and Red Bull, and she has painted murals around the world, from Istanbul to San Francisco. After moving home to her native Nepal, Shrestha founded the Children’s Art Museum in Nepal, for which she was awarded an Advancing Leaders Fellowship from World Learning.

Shrestha graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education with a master’s degree in education in 2017. Currently, she is the Boston Artist-in-Residence for the Boston Arts Commission, the Arts Manager at the Harvard South Asia Institute, and a lead artist in the education department at the Museum of Fine Arts.
