His 8th solo art exhibition ‘Rhythmic Abstraction’ has come to us through a new lens.

About the exhibition Liakat Ali said, “The wish to find compatibility in my abstract, sometimes felt like fantasy. That is likely to result in an abstraction. People’s happiness is one kind of musical ornamentation; music and heart are filled with joy. When I drew my painting ‘Shongitmoy Mon’, it was the beginning of my painting life. You can find the taste of imaging within a painting. The mood of the painting makes the image much more attractive and the music can give a new mood to the images which can be a new style to the abstract images in the contemporary platform, which looks like rhythmic abstraction.’

The exhibition will be open to all from 3:00pm to 9:00pm till August 13. The exhibition will remain closed on Sunday.
