শনিবার, ২৭ ডিসেম্বর ২০১৪

27 December 2014 There are art pieces displayed every nook and corner of Faculty of Fine Arts (FFA), University of Dhaka (DU). Marking birth centenary of Shilpacharya Zainul Aabedin, a three-week (December 11-31) Annual Art Exhibition by the teachers and the students of all the departments of FFA is on. A four day (December 26-29) Zainul Mela is showcasing artworks collectively done by the academics of all the departments. Besides, the entire natural settings and ambience of Charukala has mingled with artworks, installations and aesthetic glamour.

AAMS Arefin Siddique, Vice Chancellor of DU, inaugurated the Zainul Fair yesterday morning. Professor Nisar Hossain, Dean of FFA, Professor Syed Abul Barq Alvi, former Dean of FFA and a son of Shilpacharya were present.

Annual art exhibition, dedicating to the memory of recently-deceased eminent artist Qayyum Chowdhury, is displaying marvelous artworks. Zainul Gallery-1 and 2 is showcasing artworks by the teachers of FFA while artworks by the student are on display at respective departments.

Professor Samarjit Roy Chowdhury depicted “A Scene of Old Dhaka” (acrylic) while Professor Farida Zaman beautifully portrayed “Sufia and Birds” on the same media. Sheikh Afzal Hossain's oil (“Ayana's Dream”) has an exquisite texture. Md. Abdul Momen Milton's wood delineated folksy thoughts, evoking sobriety. Lalarukh Selim's mixed media work “Pillar” showcases folded cloths, threads and needle with threads inside a glass. Jamal Uddin Ahmed dexterously portrayed a mixed media work “Pagla”. Professor Abdus Satter superbly portrayed an acrylic titled “The Price of Freedom” while Professor Nisar Hossain depicted “Mother-3” (mixed media). The illusion of blue, red and green lines on black surface has made an artistic appeal. Professor Nasreen Begum's fantastic acrylic work shows an untainted motherly love. Dr. Azharul Islam Sheikh's terracotta sculpture titled “Space and Form” is an experimental work. A nuance of Lord Shiva's genital organ is incorporated in the work. Mukul Kumar Baroi's bronze sculpture “Vitality” is innovative in style and form. One can view the work as an experimental one with exerting subtle specific artistic meaning. Dr. Malay Bala nicely portrayed an “Abstract Expression of Sub-conscious Mind-3” in his watercolour. Swapan Kumar Sikder has displayed friendship (two intertwined female visage) on terracotta. GC Trivedi's “Illusion of Line” (mixed media) took us to an artistic world of bliss. Abdus Shakoor Shah as always depicted a folk literary character “Chandrabati”. Kantideb Adhikari's watercolour “Uncertain Life-3” displays beautiful floral rhythms of parasite on a broken branch of a tree. The exhibition features portraits of Shilpacharya. Al Manzur Elahi, an MFA student of the Department of Graphic Design made a striking portrait Shilpacharya using hollow plastic pipes. An unblemished portrait of Qayyum Chowdhury is also on at Zainul Gallery-2.

Artworks by the students are no less important than those of the teachers. Art lovers and collectors are being gathering either to gaze at the art pieces or to buy them at different stalls.

Cultural events, featuring folk songs and much more by the students of FFA with popular bands, are being held every evening. Popular band Joler Gaan enthralled the music lovers yesterday evening. Apart from the band, FFA students also performed on the evening.
