Even though Md Nazmul Haque Bappy and Sultan Ishtiaque are relatively young, they have made a name for themselves in the Dhaka art scene. Recently, the duo conducted an exhibition at the Shilpangan Gallery titled DUET. Renowned sculptor and artist Hamiduzzaman Khan inaugurated the event, while Md Rezwan Selim, Director BGMEA & Managing Director Softex Sweater Industries (Pvt) Ltd and Syed Almas Kabir, President of Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS) were scheduled as special guests.

“I derive inspiration from the beautiful nature surrounding us,” mentions Bappy, while Ishtiaque's artwork is inspired from everyday urban life.
