Bangladeshi artist Firoz Mahmud's solo exhibition is on at Skoto Gallery in New York. The gallery was established in 1992 as a space where some of the best works by African artists could be exhibited for a diverse audience, says a press release.
Firoz has done his PH.D from Japan after his BFA from Institute of Fine Arts. He has also graduated from Tama Art University in Japan with a MFA.
The artist plays mostly with historical images. The images of Nawab Sirajudaulla, warriors astride horses, many pre-historical images and scribbled lines are the focus of his paintings. He has used rust, yellow, pink and shades of glittering green in his works.
