  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
The 1st solo painting exhibition of artist Manjurul Shibly titled An Untimely Story (Ashomoyer Golpo) is going on at La Galerie of the Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the city's Dhanmondi area now.  
Prof Anisuzzaman, Professor Emeritus, University of Dhaka inaugurated the exhibition as the chief guest, while Aly Zaker, theatre activist and media personality, also attended the ceremony as the special guest.
Manjurul Shibly was born in 1988. He completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of Development Alternative (UODA). He started his career with Alpha-I Media Productions Ltd. as a director and creative manager.
While giving explanation of the theme of the exhibition titled An Untimely Story (Ashomoyer Golpo) the artist said, "Time is very scattered, constantly muddled with confusion and chaos and whatnot. One can hardly blame the time for any misfortune he or she may encounter as time runs on its own and listens to no one. Not so long ago that the phenomenon of technology came along and many became distracted by it."
Shibly's exhibition is for those people who got confused by that distraction and sought a kind of respite. Technology is continuously providing newer facilities and services, but only by ensconcing balance between technology and the spirit of human life, time can become something worthwhile to journey through. And that is the story Shibly wants to tell.
The exhibition will continue
till December 10. n
