Bangladesh is the land of diversity and pristine beauty. The scenic beauty of rural Bangladesh has always charmed artists and poets, who have depicted the beauty of the land in their poems and paintings.
Artist Shohag Parvez is no exception. The artist has depicted scenic beauty and simplicity of rural life in his 7th solo art exhibition titled ‘Rup Baichitre Bangladesh’ at Gallery 21.
The artist is showcasing eight pen sketches, 11 drawings, 23 watercolour paintings, six acrylic and two oil on canvas paintings depicting hills, rivers, rural huts, forests, swamps, fishermen, farmers, traditional sailing boats, six seasons and others at the exhibition.
The displayed art works show farmers playing flutes on the bank of rivers, women husking rice, farmers harvesting paddy in the fields, wildlife and urban life of Dhaka.
One of the displayed paintings by Shohag Parvez shows birds catching fish in a swamp.
In another watercolour painting Parvez has depicted Sadarghat -- the river port of Dhaka. The painting shows steamers, small boats and launches plying on the Buriganga river and the busy streets adjacent to Sadarghat.
