Bimanesh Biswas was born in the district of Narail in 1953. He completed his BAF from University of Dhaka in 1980. Currently he is teaching at
Department of Drawing and Painting, Institute of Fine Arts, University of Khulna. “A reflection of the cosmic kind,” artist Bimanesh Biswas replied
laconically to the question as to what he aims for while painting his pieces. His watercolours show villages, riverbanks, rural waterways, and
mangrove forest ‘The Sundarbans’. Mentored by the eminent artist SM Sultan during his childhood, Biswas experienced a rich context that helped him
find himself artistically later in his life. He utilizes both watercolor and acrylic to limn natural sceneries presenting the viewers with lush
greenery, the esoteric beauty of Bangladesh.
On Book Launch: The Book ‘SM Sultan, An Artistic Lifestyle of Verity’ written by Subhash Biswas is enriched with many known and yet unknown
information on SM Sultan. SM Sultan’s footprint is found in many different branches of art; as such, rare details of his contributions in Pattachitra,
woodwork, pottery, idols etc. have made this book valuable.
The exhibition will be open to all till Saturday, 19 february 2016.Visiting Hours: Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 9 pm, Friday and Saturday (9 am to 12 noon and 5 pm to 8 pm). Closed on Sunday.
