Bangladesh, Oil 1997

In Living Colour

Shahabuddin is a living legend whose work needs no introduction. Rather than attempt in vain to capture the glory of his genius in words, we have opted to present to you a two-page spread of some of his most transcendent works. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and in the case of the master painter, we feel that nothing could approach the eloquence of his creations, a selection of which we offer here for your viewing with pride and patriotism. We feel that no celebration of Bangladesh today would be complete without a feature on the award-winning and internationally feted artist who has done so much to create the modern artistic identity of the nation and who has put Bangladeshi art on the world stage.
