DL desk, Dhaka
Four-day Zainul Utsab ends at Bakultola today

Today is the 104th birth anniversary of internationally-acclaimed painter Zainul Abedin (December 29, 1914-2014), popularly known as Shilpacharya, the guru of art. He is the pioneer of the country’s modern art and founder of Charukola (Faculty of Fine Arts, Dhaka University).

To celebrate his birth centenary in a befitting manner, like the previous years, a four-day festival titled ‘Zainul Utsab and Zainul Mela’ has been arranged by Faculty of Fine Arts (FFA) on the Bokultola premises of FFA, University of Dhaka (DU).

Commenced on December 25, the four-day festival will come to an end today through an award ceremony.

Today, in the early morning, floral wreaths will be placed on the grave of Zainul Abedin adjacent to Dhaka University central mosque marking the 104th birth anniversary of Shilpacharya Zainul Abedin.

Later, Zainul Honourary Award and Zainul Gold Medal will be distributed among the awardees.

More than 100 sculptures, 50 selective drawing and paintings, souvenirs based on Zainul’s artworks by the students, teachers and alumni are available at the fair with the convenient price.

Zainul Abedin (December 29, 1914 – May 28, 1976) was a Bangladeshi painter. He got the breakthrough in 1944 with his Famine Series paintings of 1943. After partition he moved to Pakistan; and finally, when Bangladesh was created in 1971, he was rightly considered the founding father of Bangladeshi art. He was an artist of exceptional talent and international repute. Like many of his contemporaries, his paintings on the Bengal famine of the 1940s are probably his most characteristic work. In Bangladesh, he is referred with honour as Shilpacharya (Great Teacher of the Arts) in Bangladesh for his artistic and visionary qualities. l
