Solo miniature art show at AFD from tomorrow

LIFE AND THE NARRATIVE OF TIME-1
DL DESK, DHAKA
Solo miniature art show 
at AFD from tomorrow

The third solo miniature art exhibition titled ‘Life and the Narrative of Time-1’ by artist Professor Dr Hira Sobahan is set to start at La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the capital’s Dhanmondi area. The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition will be held tomorrow at 5:30pm on the gallery premises.

State minister for cultural affairs KM Khalid will attend the opening ceremony as the chief guest, while eminent artist Rafiqun Nabi will attend the event as the special guest.

Around 101 artworks will be put on display in this exhibition.

Famous art critic John Lumsden Propert writes in ‘A History of Miniature Art’:

“The Regent diamond, or the Koh-i-noor is small in comparison with the paving-stones on our highways and almost infinitesimal in juxtaposition with the boulder on the mountain side, but they are certainly not insignificant, and the power and light condensed within their small circumference may be justly compared with the force, life, and truth concentrated by the hand of a master on an inch or two of vellum, paper or ivory, bearing the same sort of relation to the larger panels and canvases that the gem does to the rock.”

For his third solo miniature art exhibition, Professor Dr Hira Sobahan has brought about a narrative of the time employing oil pastel, pen ink and acrylic on newsprint. He is particularly conversant with modern approaches of art, namely concrete, semi-abstract and abstract. His artworks depict the natural beauties of this country, the modern way of life, disasters, the various shortcomings of society, and social decadence, among others. The title of his exhibition is ‘Life and the Narrative of Time-1’. Out of his 500 miniature artworks, only 101 will be on display for the exhibition.

Dr Hira Sobahan (Md Abdus Sobahan) was born on 24 May 1970 at the village Nandibari in Muktagacha of Mymensingh district. He is a well-known print maker, painter, designer, researcher and writer. Currently he is a professor of printmaking at the Department of Painting Oriental Art and Printmaking, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Rajshahi.

The exhibition will remain open to all till July 23 and can be visited according to the schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday (9am to12noon and 5pm to 8pm). Closed on Sunday.
