Farhana Afroz’s subject ranged from humors to day to day experiences which left a mark on her conscious. The sculptures of Farzana Islam express the lives of the people around her, the old building and the presence of nature. Monidipa Dasgupta, a passionate artist with a strong urge to discover and design ways to recreate urban lifestyle through her artwork. Mukti Bhowmik tries to portray her forgotten desires through her work. Her works are very much influence by childhood memories and nature. Monira Sultana loves nature very much. She portrays on her canvas the surrounding of nature. 

 The subject of Rebeka Sultana’s work is the representation of women as well as the nature in different colours through different designs. Rehena Yesmin makes an effort to illuminate the intangible and abstract beauty of the incorruptible soul, often eclipsed by the struggles, controversies and clashes of the reality of modern times. Frida Kahlo’s (a famous Mexican painter) power of portraying pathos and emotions of womanhood touches Refat Jahan deeply and thus it becomes the subject of her painting. The new series of paintings by Shaila Akhter accelerated with thought provoking sojourn of women empowerment and freedom.
