A ten-day solo painting exhibition titled ‘Red Dwarf’ by artist Pervaj Hasan Rigan has begun at La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in Dhanmondi of the capital.

The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition was held on the gallery premises on Thursday.

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.

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.

In his works he 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.

Born in Barisal in 1988, Pervaj completed his BFA and MFA from the Department of Drawing and Painting, University of Dhaka. The young artist prefers to work with oil paint, acrylic, videos and sound and charcoal and have produced a number of series.

The exhibition remains open to all till March 2 and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday (9am to12noon and 5pm to 8pm). Closed on Sunday.
