Creative arts breed happiness, says Mustafa Monwar

Prominent artist and former chairman of Bangladesh Shishu Academy Mustafa Monwar on Saturday said an artist needs to find joy in creativity, not in making money, reports UNB.

“It doesn't matter how much you earn with artworks. You'll have to put in your efforts in arts for your own happiness," he told the third edition of Art-Echo, a monthly talk-show of Cosmos-Atelier 71.

The event titled 'Akajer Manush' was held at its studio at Cosmos Centre in the city.

Mustafa Monwar attended the session as the key speaker where he shared his views on traditional art and culture of Bangladesh with the studio members.

During the discussion, he shed lights on different forms of traditional arts that reflect rural Bangladesh.

Mustafa Monwar, an Ekushe Padak winner, said, "The fact is that I respect my devotion to art and see it as my biggest achievement."

Artists, poets, photographers, architects and filmmakers, among others, attended the session.
