Red heart in the middle of a red-green canvas. In the middle of that heart is the face of Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. This extraordinary painting of Bangabandhu, created by Bangladeshi artist Ronnie Ahmed, is now on display at the famous Art and Antiques Gallery on the banks of the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. The exhibition of this painting, titled Mujib 100 in Bangkok, started from 18 March. The Art and Antiques Gallery, known as the heart of Thailand's art culture, regularly hosts exhibitions by world-renowned painters.
Anisul Haque Chowdhury Shohag, Managing Director of Mermaid Eco-Tourism Limited, has taken this initiative to highlight the Father of the Nation abroad on the occasion of Bangabandhu's birth centenary.
Shohag said, "Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is our greatest leader. He wanted to conquer everything with love. We want to spread the message of the love of our father of the nation all over the world."
Rad Hossain, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Mermaid Eco-Tourism Limited, has collaborated with Shohag in this exhibition of Bangabandhu's paintings at The Art and Antiques Gallery in Bangkok.
