Tajul Islam’s tapestry and painting exhibition begins at AFD

A nine-day solo tapestry and painting exhibition titled ‘Composition of Forms and Colours’ by Tajul Islam 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 Friday evening on the gallery premises, where eminent architect Rabiul Husain was present as the chief guest.

A collection of 33 tapestry artworks and 32 paintings have been put on display in the ongoing exhibition.

Taijul Islam was born in 1946 at Shariatpur District. From 1965 to 1979, Tajul Islam spent 14 years with Rashid Chowdhury—known as a pioneer in tapestry art in Bangladesh—in his studio honing the craft of creating compelling and beautiful tapestries. One look at Islam’s creations and it is understandable that he takes after Chowdhury. Though the influence is there, it does not overpower Islam’s unique kind of coloured stripes, imagery or visual language. The septuagenarian artist is still active and beaming, creating inspirational tapestries full of life and movement. Featuring both tapestries and paintings, the theme for this exhibition is ‘Inventing the Creative Beauty’. Tajul’s canvases or screens are full with colourful forms and black-white-red-yellow-blue-green patches those express various conceptions and perceptions of aesthetic human realization.  

The exhibition is open to all till November 23 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.

AFD: 26 Mirpur Road, Dhanmondi
