Mahmudul Haque's solo exhibition at Bengal Gallery
Bengal Gallery of Fine Arts, in Dhaka, has organised a solo painting exhibition, titled â€œRe-Enacting Actualityâ€, featuring the works of seasoned painter Mahmudul Haque. The exhibition opens today.
Professor Emeritus Dr. Anisuzzaman will inaugurate the exhibition as chief guest. Lee Yun-Young, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Bangladesh, and Kihak Sung, chairman and CEO of Youngone Corporation, will be present as special guests.
About 45 acrylic paintings will be on display at the exhibition.
Mahmudul Haque has a fondness for compositions and forms. He prefers to depict scenes from his nostalgia. His evocative lines form the backdrop, making way for a play of colours. His paintings explore kaleidoscopic patterns and a fantasy world.
Born in 1945, Haque did his honours from Dhaka Art Institute (presently the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka) and masters from Japan's University of Tsukuba. He was a Professor at Printmaking Department, Faculty of Fine Arts, Dhaka University, and has had 31 solo exhibitions. Among several awards, Mahmudul Haque had received 'Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy Purashkar' and 'Sultan Padak'.
The exhibition will continue till February 21.
