Young Bangladeshi artists honour Gandhi through art
Young Bangladeshi artists commemorated the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi through a four-day art camp titled "[email protected] Art Camp" that formally ends on Sunday.
Fifteen young artists from Bangladesh participated in the art camp from December 12 to 15 at Sreemangal, Sylhet organised by Indian High Commission in Dhaka.
The artworks produced in the [email protected] Art Camp would be exhibited at Shilpakala Academy in early January.
Rokeya Sultana, a renowned artist and professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Dhaka University was the mentor of the camp, said the Indian High Commission on Saturday.
Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Riva Ganguly Das inaugurated the art camp at the High Commission here on December 11.
Deputy High Commissioner Bishwadip Dey visited the art camp on Saturday and interacted with the artists.
"I'm pleased to see the enthusiastic participation by the young artists in the camp. Their works are indeed reflective of their understanding of the Gandhian way of thought," said Riva Ganguly.
The High Commissioner said Gandhi's principles are timeless and she is encouraged to see that it has found resonance in the minds of these young participating artists. -UNB
