  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
A solo painting exhibition by Prof Siddhartha Talukder titled
Self-revelation is going on at La Galerie, Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the city’s Dhanmondi area now. Eminent artist Prof Rafiqun Nabi inaugurated the exhibition as the chief guest while noted art critic Prof Moinuddin Khaled and renowned artist Prof Nisar Hossain were also attended the opening
ceremony as special guests on the occasion. Bruno Plasse, Director of AFD, gave welcome speech at the opening ceremony.
Siddhartha Talukder comes from exploring a long 40 years in pursuit of art. Though he participated in more than 100 group exhibitions, both national and international level, this exhibition titled
Self-revelation is his first solo.
In the past few years Prof Talukder worked with different colour media like oil, watercolour, acrylic, pastel, and mixed media. His artistic language is abstract and his subjects are mainly nature and human, sometimes non-objective; and conveys both traditionalism and modernism. Some of his paintings are painted over a long period of time and encapsulate many layers of musings and creative awareness.
As Talukder puts it, ‘each diligent artist should leave a sign of their own style even under restriction,’
his paintings exude hard work, dedication and introspection.
Prof Siddhartha Talukder was born in Jamalpur district in 1957.
He obtained his MFA (Drawing and Painting), Institute of Fine Art, University of Dhaka in 1984.  He did PhD on History of Art from
Visva-Bharati University, Santinketan, India in 1999. Currently he is the Professor of Department
of Painting, Oriental Art and Printmaking, University of Rajshahi.
The exhibition will continue
till March 18. n
