A 15-day solo art exhibition of artist Rezaun Nabi, titled ‘Metamorphic -Naturally Transformed’, started at Gallery Cosmos in the city on October 14. A total of 38 artworks of the artist have been put on display at his 7th solo art exhibition curated by artist Afrozaa Jamil Konka and supported by BEXIMCO.
State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid visited the exhibition on the opening day and conveyed his greetings to Rezaun Nabi who tried to enlighten the audience with natural creations and the dynamic flora and fauna etched in borders.
Director of Dhaka Bank Khondoker Jamil Uddin, Senior Vice President of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) Faruque Hassan and artist Rezaun Nabi, his wife artist Sohane Shahreen and artist Kalidas Karmakar were, among others, present at the inaugural function presided over by Director of Gallery Cosmos Tehmina Enayet.
In his speech, Rezaun Nabi said he has long been working with nature and landscape. “Being an impressionist, I try to reflect in my metamorphic arts the nature of Bangladesh.”
Tehmina Enayet said Rezaun Nabi has expressed his talent through colours with an emotion of songs of art. “His every piece of art is a masterpiece.”

Rezaun Nabi was born in Dhaka in 1956. Although he grew up in urban Dhaka, his works are devoid of urbanisation. He completed his graduation and post graduation from the Drawing and Paintings Department of the Institute of Fine Arts (now the Faculty of Fine Arts) of Dhaka University in 1880 and 1983 respectively.
His first art exhibition was held in the Netherlands in 1988. He was awarded for his artworks on several occasions.
Nabi’s space in his artworks is colour-sensitive. A crystal-like clarity attracts him a lot.
Although he has shown his expertise in water-colour, he wants to connect it with acrylic as well.
Nabi has an innate ability to perceive colours through almost a childlike perception. He did not express any sickness or the likeness of any ill mind through his artworks.
His contemplation for nature has kept his thirst for seeking beauty alive. He is linked to children’s art and other activities both as part of his profession and obsession.
His ventures into the unknown depths of colour have made him realise that the expressions within one’s emotions are depicted through expressive colours. Sound is made where colours touch white space, and different colours form different sounds.

[Kangana Ranaut miraculously escapes a road accident ] Queen actress Kangana Ranaut, who is currently filming for Hansal Mehta’s ‘Simran’ in the US, recently miraculously escaped unhurt in a road accident. According to reports, the incident took place when the group was returning from the shooting location, which was outside Georgia, to their hotel in Atlanta.

Luckily, no one was hurt and everyone managed to escape the accident including the 29-year-old actress.

A source informed that the she did not want to stall the shoot despite the fact that the makers were ready to take a break.
Kangana Ranaut won the national award for best actress award in Tanu Weds Manu Returns where she had dual roles and bother her characters demanded different nature, accent and appearance, reports Indian Express.
