State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid yesterday said the arts and works of eminent artist Sheikh Mohammed Sultan, commonly known as SM Sultan, will inspire new generation to get involved in creative works and arts.

“When SM Sultan was alive, he passed an isolated life. But, when Sultan died, he became popular among the people both in the country and abroad,” the state minister said while addressing the concluding ceremony of the 10-day Sultan Mela on Narail Government Victoria College ground here.

Chaired by Narail Deputy Commissioner Anjuman Ara, the ceremony was addressed, among others, by Superintendent of Police Md Jasim Uddin, Painter Mustafa Monwar, Principal of the college Professor Rabiul Islam and Narial District Awami League President Adv Subhash Chandra Bose.

SM Sultan was a Bengali avant-garde artist who worked in painting and drawing. His fame rests on his striking depictions of exaggeratedly muscular Bangladeshi peasants engaged in the activities of their everyday lives. l
