A two-week solo painting exhibition titled ‘A Way to Break Beyond’ by Salma Zakia Bristy has begun at the La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the capital’s Dhanmondi area.

Eminent artist Kanak Chanpa Chakma and Abinta Gallery of Fine Arts chairperson Nilu Reason Murshed were present at the opening ceremony on the gallery premises on Friday.

The artworks of ‘A Way to Break Beyond’ is based on the children diagnosed with autism, as well as on the hope and the optimism of their parents.

Thousands of kids around the globe suffer from autism. These innocent children are widely misunderstood by the majority of people in their surroundings, sometimes even by their parents during the initial stages. Unlike common people, they view the world from an entirely different angle and their viewpoints might be worlds apart sometimes, but that does not mean that they are a defected or a subject to be bullied. They possess a high level of fluid intelligence, which refers to their ability to distinctively understand and solve new problems. We should understand these gifted personalities and help them nurture their unique brain functions, because frankly, since the beginning of the human race, it has never been the people with conventional perception who contributed to major revolution and inventions which led to phenomenal advancements in our world as we know it today.

The exhibition remains open to all until April 2 and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 9 pm, Friday and Saturday (9 am to 12 noon and 5 pm to 8 pm); closed on Sunday.

Born in Comilla, Salma Zakia Bristy completed her BFA (Hons) from the Department Print Making, Institute of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka. She got the ‘Grand Award’ in 18th Asian Art Biennale 2018, Bangladesh.
