Iskindar Mirza’s Illusion of Colour

  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
Artist Iskindar Mirza has dedicated to create illusions of colours through his artworks. There is a kind of sorcerous enticement in artworks - he believes - when colours are present. Iskindar’s key paintings depict horses of the Old Dhaka, as well as buffaloes, blacksmith, women, flower, leaves, nature, and many traditional artifacts of Bangladesh.
Through the blending of assorted hues, the artist tries to create a synergy that evokes what he feels and he wants to feel: distant past, lost culture, or tenderness of the nature around him.
The people of Bangladesh, their livelihoods, their beasts of burden, the environment they live in, their lives’ somewhat harmonious placidity - all have multitude of colours in them that are both parti-coloured and illusive.  Artist Iskindar Mirza has only tried to bring that congruity to light.
The 2nd solo painting exhibition titled Illusion of Colour by artist Iskindar Mirza was held at La Galerie of the Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the city’s Dhanmondi area recently.
Eminent artist Mustafa Manwar graced the occasion as the chief guest while noted artist Prof Samarjit Roy Chowdhury and Prof Nasreen Begum, Professor of the Department of Oriental Art, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka attended the programme as special guests at the inauguration.
Nirupoma Naher, Human Resources Associate, United Nations Development Programme also attended the opening ceremony as guest of honour on the occasion.  
Iskindar Mirza has completed her BFA and MFA from Department of Oriental Art, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka.
He has already attended more than 30 group exhibitions. His first solo exhibition was held at Zainul Gallery in 2015. The two-week long exhibition was wrapped up on April 24. n
