From the mythical sagas like the vignettes of Shakuntala, the eternal love between Radha-Krishna, and the political aspects from the Mahabharata to the realistic, abstract, semi-abstract, symbolic, and modern presentations of the idyllic beauty of Bengal, portraits of the towering literary and cultural personalities like Tagore and Nazrul, and the contemporary socio-political and cultural features - all have manifested gracefully in their canvasses.
Alliance Française de Dhaka organises a group painting exhibition titled ‘Preceptor-Disciple: Disciple-Preceptor’ in its La Galerie of AFD in the capital’s Dhanmondi area. The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition is scheduled to be held today at 5.30pm.  
Eminent artist Monirul Islam will grace the occasion as the chief guest. Prof Nisar Hossain, Dean, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka, art connoisseurs Abdullah Al Mahmud and Mikhail I Islam will also attend the ceremony as the special guests on the occasion.
Based in Dhaka, the trio, following the conventional Guru-Shishya Parampara, runs various art activities like practising, exhibiting and promoting oriental art in Bangladesh.
