Visitors look at paintings by Siddhartha Talukder on display at AFD.

In his first solo, Siddhartha Talukder, who has been painting for over 40 years, displays paintings depicting nature and life with vibrant and bold strokes of different colours.
The solo show of the artist is underway at La Gallerie of Alliance Francaise in Dhaka. Till date he has taken part in 30 group art exhibitions in different countries.
‘Holding a solo show is a matter of great responsibility and challenge. After painting for over four decades, I think I am finally ready for my first solo exhibition,’ Siddhartha told New Age.
The exhibition titled ‘Self-Revelation’ features 35 paintings done in different mediums including acrylic, oil, charcoal and mixed media.
Landscape with Moon is an oil painting displayed at the show. The painting is an experimental work which depicts mountains in moonlit night.
The painting Landscape-6 gives the audience a bird’s eye view of a typical village. The village surrounded by patches of green fields of different sizes appears in bright shades of green.
Human emotions and life are subjects of a number of Siddhartha’s paintings displayed at the show. One such painting at the show is Relation-3. At first glance the painting might look like a disorganised amalgamation of colours but with a closer inspection two human figures - a man and a woman becomes visible.
The painting also reveals triangular shapes that look like rural houses right behind the couple.
The exhibition, which began on March 10, will remain open for all from 3pm to 8pm every day (except Sundays) till March 22.
