Description
Bijoy 71
Exhibitions: Bijoy ‘71 - by Ahmed Choudhury and 

The fascination with the natural beauty in our world is what inspires Ahmed Choudhury to keep making art.  He uses a variety of techniques and mediums to create fine art pieces with oil paint, watercolour, pastel and photography. His work switches from abstract to figurative.   Subjects vary from landscapes of far afield to the cityscapes of east London. He is currently focusing on the theme of 50 years of Bangladesh’s independence. His expanded range of media also incorporates print making as well as digital art.

 

Colours of Bengal by designed Sudip Chakroborthy and painted by Shameem Hossain.

These beautiful hand-painted banners celebrate the arts and culture of Bangladesh in the year of its 50th anniversary.  Each banner reflects something of the rural life of Bangladesh as depicted in folk tales and traditional storytelling. Whimsical, evocative and colourful, they show people dancing, singing and making music.  They also illustrate flora and fauna native to Bangladesh, including the magnificent tiger.

The banners were designed by Sudip Chakroborthy and painted by Shameem Hossain.
