Sourav’s solo art exhibition begins at Alliance Francaise


A solo art exhibition titled Eternal Existence by artist Sourav Chowdhury has begun at La Galerie, Alliance Française de Dhaka. The inaugural ceremony of this exhibition was held on Friday.
Ms. Rupali Chowdhury, Managing Director, Berger Paints Bangladesh Limited , Tehmina Enayet, Director, Gallery Cosmos, Biren Shome, Eminent Artist and Moninuddin Khaled, Renound Art Critic were among the distinguest guests present during the innagural ceremony. Mr Bruno Plasse, Director of Alliance Française de Dhaka welcomed the distinguished guests and will also presided over the opening ceremony.Sourav Chowdhury was born in Rajshahi in 1987. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Painting and did his master’s in the same subject from the University of Development Alternative (UODA). The instinctive similarity of human nature from the primitive era to modern time has always amazed him. Not that the gloomy, ghastly and grim qualities of human nature do not exist in his cerebration, but Chowdhury tries to bring lots of positive energy by using bright colours and the liveliness of the figures to create a pleasant vibe in all of his artworks.
For the last 6 years, Chowdhury has been working on a series of works titled ‘Civilization’ creating an environment of fantasy where mythological characters emerge in a playful mood that he tends to overlap with primitive cave paintings. Another series called ‘Eternal Existence’ is also about fantasy where the utopian gesture comes from his innate contemplation. He picks his figures from the Bengali folk art and draws them with the same motif, the manipulation happens as a twist in the spatial overlapping with primitive cave art figures where the juxtaposition of the two seems to haunt one another. He always tries to bring forward his dedication, hard work and passion for creating images on paper so that the intricate details of line and form create a depth of euphemism in his works. There are thirty five artworks to be displayed in the exhibition.
The exhibition will be open to all till Friday, 9 May May, 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.
