Bangladeshi Artist Monsur ul Karim did his graduation from the Institute of Arts, University of Dhaka and He has recently retired as a professor from the Chittagong University. Artist Monsur ul Karim received the ‘Ekushey Padak’ in 2009 and many others prestigious awards in the country and abroad. He also received Sultan Padak for his contributions to the Bangladeshi art in 2014.


Monsur ul Karim in his present solo exhibition is a little different. He appears in fact in several variations and he is now more experimental with form and colour. In general, Monsur is more colourful in this exhibition than he was ever before. He produces cool compositions of blues and dark greens with whitish cross bars. Some of the colour fields are flat, some are decorated with small forms and some also with dots. Some canvases are composed of bright and contrasting vertical bars; some have a combination of horizontal and vertical spaces. Quite a few of the compositions are basically abstract in nature, some with images of trees or human figures. In some works Mansur adds spaces decorated with irregular and unrecognizable form or image.

Eminent artist Monirul Islam, eminent art critic & writer Prof. Nazrul Islam and social worker, promoter of art, culture & heritage Ms. Tootli Rahman will jointly inaugurate the exhibition “Epoch” as Special Guests.

It will remain open for all from 30 September to 14 October 2016. Daily from 12 pm to 8 pm
