Remembering Camellia Parvin

Memorial programme at Gallery Chitrak

Camellia Parvin

Painter Camellia Parvin's first death anniversary was observed on October 19. Born and raised in Rangpur, she was a student of Oriental Department, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka. She completed her BFA and MFA from the institute. Parvin could also sing very well. She married noted cartoonist Shishir Bhattacharjee in 1990. The artist passed away last year at the age of 43.
On the occasion of her first death anniversary, a discussion programme and art exhibition was held at Gallery Chitrak, Dhanmondi. Parvin's teachers, relatives, friends and well-wishers were present at the programme.
Renowned artist Hashem Khan said, “I've known Camellia as my student. I can recall her intense concern for her family. She frequently talked about her daughter before her demise.”
Artist Rafiqun Nabi said, “Why is life so short? It's difficult to say something at a condolence meeting.”
Sculptor Ferdousi Priyobhashini said, “We knew each other for 7/8 years. Her simplicity and generosity made the relationship deeper over the years. We have not only lost a gifted painter, but also a genuinely caring human being.”
Following the discussion, Sadi and Krishnokoli performed songs.
After the programme, the late artist’s daughter Srabonti along with her father, Shishir Bhattacharjee, invited the guests to the gallery where an exhibition featuring Parvin's paintings was on.
As an oriental painter, Camellia Parvin had delved deep into human relationships, emotions and romanticism. Her works are lively and take the viewers to a dreamy world. Feminine subjects often got focus in the artist's works.
