Two prominent artists to share birthday today

Today marks the 88th birthday of the multifarious genius Murtaja Baseer, and also marks the 77th birthday of internationally renowned Bangladeshi artist Monirul Islam.

Murtaja Baseer is a Bangladeshi painter. In 1949, he got admitted to the Government Institute of Arts and Crafts. On February 21, he joined the meeting of Amtala at Dhaka University. Later that day, went to Dhaka museum to postpone the exhibition for the violating circumstances. Later, he had to hide from the police as they tried to arrest the activists. He drew cartoons and festoons for the movement. Many of his cartoons describe the sacrifice of the martyrs of the language movement and the struggle for the mother land.

Most of the paintings by Murtaja Baseer during the period of 1954-1960 captured the simplified reality of the everyday middle class and lower-middle class life.

He received Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy Award, Ekushey Padak, Sultan Padak and Prix National Award in France.

On the other hand, Monirul islam, who shares his time between Bangladesh and Spain, received the Ekushey Padak in 1999 and The Cross of Officer of the Order of Queen Isabella in 2009 for his contributions to the development of art in Spain.

Monir displayed his works at solo and group shows held in the USA, the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Turkey, Japan, Korea and other countries and won awards participating in biennales and exhibitions held in Spain, former Yugoslavia, the USA and Norway.

His works have been included in collections of Bangladesh National Museum and several other museums in Spain, Jordan, Iraq, Taiwan and Norway.
