Expatriate artist Tamim Jalilur Rabbi is displaying paintings depicting cosmopolitan country France, French people and heritage and at a fortnight solo exhibition ongoing at Abinta Gallery of Fine Arts in North Badda.

Abinta Gallery of Fine Arts and Infra-Red Communication have jointly organised the fortnight exhibition of Tamim, who now lives in France.

The show titled ‘Unknown Faces and Others’ displays 44 ink on paper paintings, among which 22 depict human faces and others feature French culture, heritage, human relationship and others.

The artist has symbolically used lines and colours to depict human emotions.

One of the displayed artwork titled ‘Summer’ shows an unidentified human face drawn using vibrant colours.

‘In summer people in France enjoy themselves. They travel, go to beaches, climb mountains and so on. The bright colours in the painting depict happiness and joy’, said Tamim.

The artwork, titled ‘Transformation’, shows a human face painted in various colours, which depict the transformation of emotions.

The artwork titled ‘Notre-Dame de Paris’ shows the famous medieval catholic cathedral in Paris, which is considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture.

The artwork titled ‘The couple 1’ shows a couple painted in red colour sitting closely. The red colour represents love.

The painting titled ‘Flamenco Dancer-2’ shows a Spanish female dancer performing wearing a traditional red Spanish dress.

‘I have tried to capture the spontaneous movements and expressions of the dancer in the work’, said Tamim.

The painting titled ‘The Horse Rider’ shows a soldier riding a horse holding a spear in his hand.

The internationally acclaimed Bangladeshi artist Shahabuddin Ahmed, who was present at the inauguration ceremony of the solo show held on Wednesday, praised Tamim for his endeavours.  ‘Tamim has improved his art style and needs to improve more’, Shahabuddin said.

Art critic Borhan Uddin Khan Jahangir inaugurated the show. Noted sculptor Hamiduzzaman Khan, former home affairs minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir and Begum Rokeya University vice chancellor Nazmul Ahsan Kalimullah were also present at the programme.

The exhibition will end on August 31.
