Beauties of Bangladesh exhibited at DACCultural Correspondent
The distinctive natural beauty of small but geographically diverse country Bangladesh has been portrayed artistically in Sohag Parvez’s ongoing fifth solo exhibition at the Dhaka Art Centre.
Done mostly in watercolour and pen, the 25 displayed artworks of the show titled Banglar Rup, depicts the beauties of nature like plain land, rivers, upland, mountains and sea.
Parvez has also presented the culture and living style of the village people in convincing manner.
Parvez’s artistic talents of painting with acrylic can be seen in his painting titled Kaal Boishakhi-4. His delicate lines tinted with black and beige shades on the canvas articulate the tossing and hurling scenes in a northwester. It is impossible not to notice the hurling wind that runs over the canvas and makes everything - trees, boats, people, lake water- bow down to that wind hurl.
Another work of the series tilted Kaal Boishakhi-10 displays the artist’s skills of depicting a northwester using watercolour.
Other impressive works on display include the Murang Para, Banderban series where the detailed illustrations of the lives of upland people will surely make an impression on any viewer.
‘Bangladesh has both natural and geographical riches and beauties. I have been fascinated about the diverse beauties since my childhood. My canvases, I hope, portray the fascination I hold within myself,’ Sohag Parvez told New Age.
Shamsuzzaman Khan, director general of Bangla Academy, inaugurated the exhibition on September 13. A large number of art enthusiasts and art students were present at the inauguration.
‘Sohag is a wonderful artist. He is as adept in using watercolour, as he is in using acrylic and pen/pencil in his painting,’ said Adil Hasan, a student of fine arts.
‘Kaal Boishakhi-4 is a marvelous work, captivating in its real sense,’ said Tahmina Alam, an art aficionado.
