Artist Bipul Shah was born in Netrokana in 1967. Talented artist Bipul Shah obtained his MFA from Institute of Fine Art, University of Dhaka in 1992. He has participated in many group and 7th solo art exhibitions in home and abroad. Journey with Wreckage 2 is his eight solo exhibition.

Broken windows, rotting tin, weather-beaten walls, moth-eaten pieces of wood… the subjects of Bipul Shah’s artworks seem like vehicles that express things brought out in the light from a troubled consciousness as well as a state of the artist’s experienced reality. The artist deems that the constructs of human ambitions are backfiring, resulting in the destruction of men’s greatest achievements.
His artworks thus display a duality of grace and rivalry and a strange chiaroscuro of dream and nightmare. The physical properties, shapes, forms and the dynamics of Shah’s surroundings amalgamated with the beauty of nature that he simultaneously perceives give birth to a continuum that he, as an artist, braves as if he is on a journey.
The exhibition will be open to all till Friday, March 25, 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.
