  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
The solo art exhibition by Pervaj Hasan Rigan titled Red Dwarf is being held at La Galerie of the Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the capital’s Dhanmondi area.
For Pervaj Hasan Rigan, painting is the key for understanding the universe. He believes there is a strong relationship between mankind and the rest of the cosmos, and this strength pushes him to his work every new day. Similarly, painting is his life, without it there is no meaning of life to him.
Human portrait and figures play a significant role on Rigan's canvas because he likes the anatomy, gesture, light and shade of human figure. When he work with human feelings and thoughts it is vital to pick up those forms on his painting. He also loves to do plain air painting, so nature is an important part of his painting. Rigan uses quite a few processes to complete a painting.
It starts with a simple thought on his sketch book, then discussion with the model and photo shoot, charcoal drawing and finally the original painting. Sometime he uses Photoshop software to make more precise the structure or composition. He believes every person has their own unique mind, which he tries and capture and reflect in his work, while also representing his warm spirit, thought and style.
In his works, the artist finds spirituality, the beautiful curse of nature, alone but with the whole universe. Though, still it is full of the unknown, it’s an elusive happiness.
Most people have found darkness and beauty at the same time in his painting. Some says this painting remembered them the classic era of figurative art. As an artist, Rigan always tries to express his internal feeling through his work. His goal is to capture the mystery and spirituality in a particular experience of human mind.  
Rigan informed that he has a great inspiration by nature, on the other hand, Caravaggio, Rembrandt and some other  recent contemporary painters like Roberto Ferri’s works inspired him a lot.
Born in Barishal in 1988, Rigan completed his BFA and MFA from the Department of Drawing and Painting, University of Dhaka. The promising artist prefers to work with oil paint, acrylic, videos and sound and charcoal and have produced a number of series.
The exhibition will continue till March 2. Visiting Hours: Monday to Thursday from 3:00pm to 9:00pm, Friday and Saturday from 9:00am to 12:00 noon and 5:00pm to 8:00pm.Sunday is closed. n
