of AFD, gave the welcome speech on the occasion. Around 30
paintings are on display at the

Though Oriental art was invented in China and Japan, but with the great contributions from Abanindranath Tagore, Nandalal Bose, Abdur Rahman Chughtai and other prominent artists, Oriental art was introduced in the Indian
subcontinent. Oriental style was mainly based on watercolour
washing method. It has inherent or partial similarity between
Oriental cultures and medium
that is both powerful and
emphatic.
Nazmul Haque Bappy's paintings exhibit mountains, nature, animal and blend Oriental culture with
realism to create a new form.
He also tries to blend European style with his own style to make something very refreshing. Nature and its emotional ability to swerve, birds, rivers, sea, growing shadows of trees, leaves, sound, etc are the main aspects of Bappy’s paintings which have been done with Chinese patterns employing special types
of ink and colour.

of Oriental Art, University of Dhaka and presently doing PhD on Chinise Traditional Painting in University in Beijing, China. To be noted, he has so fur achieved several important awards, including the departmental best award 2011, best medium award 2008 and Berger young painter award 2009.
