A joint art exhibition of artists Iskindar Mirza and Mazharul Islam took place at the Peda Ting Ting Café Gallery last month. The exhibition titled ‘Anamnesis’ was inaugurated by renowned artist Kanak Chanpa Chakma. Md. Abdul Aziz, Assistant Professor and the former chairman of Oriental Art department, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka was also present there as the guest of honour.
This exhibition features two artists with very different bodies of work. Iskindar, a graduate of the Institute of Fine Arts, took audience on a time travel to old Dhaka through his watercolor paintings; especially his horse paintings would remind you of the traditional lifestyle of old Dhaka.
Mazhar, the other artist does not have any institutional education on fine arts but has a passion to express himself through his paintings. Dark emotions, sufferings and complexities of everyday life become visible in his abstract work.
