Artist Statement: ‘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 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.’
