The painting exhibition of artist Halimul Islam Khokon titled ‘Images of Inner Vision’ began at Alliance Française de Dhaka on Friday.
Artist and critic Mustofa Zaman inaugurated the exhibition, reports UNB.
Halimul Islam Khokon is a seasoned ceramic artist who earned his MFA from the Faculty of Fine Arts at Dhaka University and studied in Japan under the supervision of Prof RyojiKoie, who is revered as one of the great masters of Japanese ceramics.
After participating in more than 40 group exhibitions and four solo exhibitions, Khokon, now an enthusiastic painter, is presenting 40 paintings in this exhibition.
These paintings — which can be categorised as experimental abstract art -- take encouragement from his well-developed ceramicist artistry, which in itself takes inspiration from the Bangladeshi culture, tradition and history.
The paintings also depict primitive cave art forms and different textural abstract forms.
The exhibition will be open to all till August 2 from Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 9 pm while it will remain open on Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 12 am and 5pm to 8pm and closed on Sunday.
