Fida sees human existence in terms of a triangulation of mind, body, and spirit; collectively he sees this as the soul of a being. This existence consists of a constant fight between the dualities of good and evil, ultimately leading to death. He finds beauty in this struggle, which also generates a lot of stories. His paintings embody this struggle, a silent self-exploration, one might say. This struggle is also embodied in a mechanical process that takes over one’s life, and the inner existence, i.e. the soul is rediscovered through the process of intellectual exercise and the being aware of one’s consciousness. Fida calls this process ‘humanity’, an amalgamation of these feelings, which he terms as synthetic. His bold canvasses are an extension of that process, which are almost self-analytical.

Professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka, renowned artist Jamal Ahmed and Mr. M.K. Aaref, Director of EMK Center jointly inaugurated the exhibition ‘ENIGMA’ .

The exhibition will remain open for all from 16 – 28 July 2016. Daily from 10 am to 8 pm (Friday closed).
