The third solo painting exhibition of artist Abu Saleh Titu titled ‘Rusty Allure’ is currently underway at the Bangladesh National Museum in Shahbag of the capital.

The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition was held on February 7 on the gallery premises. Ekushey Padak winning artist Monsur Ul Karim, writer-researcher Dr Morshed Shafiul Hasan and AB Bank Managing Director Tarique Afzal, among others, were present at the event as special guests.

Speaking at the event, veteran artist Monsur Ul Karim said, “After seeing all these paintings at the exhibition today, I want to say firmly that Abu Saleh Titu is a very powerful artist. All of Titu’s paintings are different from each other. I don’t see the same image for the second time in any of his works. I congratulate Titu for his unique style.”

A total of 43 paintings, created mainly in oil and acrylic media with brushes, spatulas, and small knives, are currently on display. The artist’s lust for life and individuality of tone and mode can easily be traced on his canvases. Titu’s paintings do not have a common theme and certainly no identical medium, technique, or vision.

Titu said about his work, “Over the last one decade, the use of colour in my works has changed gradually. At one time, the use of green and yellow in my paintings was obvious. But nowadays, even I am surprised to see how vivid colours have taken over my canvases. A reason could be that a large number of my recent works focus on the mechanised city that we inhabit today. I find that my works are becoming city-oriented rather than focusing on rural scenes and greenery.”

“The main theme of my ongoing exhibition is urban life. From the geometrical structures of the city to its pain, complexity, and relation—all these elements provided me with food for thought as I worked with colours on the canvases,” Titu added while speaking about the theme of his ongoing exhibition.

Born in 1969 in Chuadanga, Titu completed his master of arts degree in Bangla from the University of Dhaka. His first solo exhibition was held at the then Dhaka Sheraton Hotel in 1994. Previously worked with several renowned organisations as a consultant, Titu is currently working as a freelance artist.

The exhibition is open to all till February 16 and can be visited according to the following schedule—Saturday to Wednesday: 10:30am to 8pm, Friday: 3:30pm to 7:30pm. The exhibition remains closed on Thursday.
