Hasan Habib’s art show underway at Dwip Gallery

UNVEILING THE TRUTH

Hasan Habib’s art show underway at Dwip Gallery

A two-week solo art exhibition ‘Unveiling the Truth’ by late artist Kazi Hasan Habib is underway at Dwip Gallery in the capital’s Lalmatia area.

Architect and critic Shamsul Wares and artist Wakilur Rahman jointly inaugurated the exhibition on Saturday.

Habib’s drawings, paintings and etchings suggest that he was not a motif-driven artist and it seems that he took his point of departure from the process of creation itself. Though, he delved into traditional shora painting, and even presented an entire show spun around his own shora paintings in 1988, at Bangla Academy, his main oeuvre bespeaks his attention to the “whole” rather than the fragments that are the motifs.    

Born on 25 December in 1949 at village Umedpur in Jessore, Habib went on to become one of the major artists of the country. He graduated from the then Government College of Fine Arts in 1972. Habib got involved in the publishing industry and churned out numerous covers for books, effecting a change it their aesthetics. Habib lived for only 39 years, but left an oeuvre with the distinctive mark of talent and individualism. He held three solo art exhibitions in Dhaka, subsequently in 1982, 1985 and 1988. The second exhibition was of an exceptional nature. It displayed 21 of his oil paintings that elaborated on the themes of poems of 21 poets of Bangladesh. He also participated in a number of national and international exhibitions between 1970 and 1985. He wrote a number of poems of considerable merit. A year after his death on 25 December 1988, a collection of his poems Nirbachito Drishtir Labonney was published.

Curated by Mustafa Zaman, the exhibition remains open to all every day from 3pm to 9pm, until January 19 (Except Mondays).
