Seven local artists and two foreign artists participated in a two-day international art camp, which ended at The Palace Luxury Resort in Habiganj on Friday.
Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy organised the art camp as an ancillary event of the month-long 18th Asian Art Biennale ongoing at the academy’s National Art Gallery.
Renowned Bangladeshi artists like Samarjit Roy Chowdhury, Hashem Khan, KMA Qayyum, Ranajit Das, Nasrin Begum, Md Iqbal and Gautam Chakrabarty and two foreign artists including Yona Ogino from Japan and Constantin Migliorini from Italy participated in the international art camp.
Besides, secretary of Shilpakala Academy Jahangir Hossain Chowdhury and BSA fine arts department assistant director M A Mostaq Ahmed, among others, were present at the art camp.
The month-long 18th edition of Asian Art Biennale is displaying 583 artworks by 465 artists from 68 countries.
Set up in January 1981 with the participation of just 14 Asian countries, the biennale in the course of time grew into a unique umbrella of artists from across the world, earning for it an international name.
