Bangladeshi-Greek art expo in Athens

A joint exhibition of Bangladeshi and Greek painters has been held at EOS Gallery, Athens, Greece. The Bangladeshi Embassy in Athens organised the exhibition. Twelve artists took part in the exhibition. Amongst them six were from Bangladesh while the other six from Greece. Labour Minister of Greece was present at the inaugural session of the exhibition. He praised the initiative as it will work to strengthen Greek-Bangladeshi ties. He promised to build an accommodative environment for Bangladeshi expatriates in Greece. At the same time he expressed amazement at the marvel depicted by Bangladeshi painting. Acknowledging that Bangladeshi painters have reached international standards he pointed out that he did not expect Bangladeshi painters to reach such heights. In the exhibition individual Bangladeshi artists depicted their individual painting styles.
Amongst the Bangladeshi painters Subrana was present with three artworks, Afroza Zamil Konka with three paintings, Dilruba with two, Sohana with two and Nipa and Bipasha with three works each. Subrana presented a work on Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Afroza Zamil Konka showcased one work on acid-terror and one on child-marriage. Her third work was a self-portrait done in Halkida UNESCO Art Camp. Dilruba presented two beautiful flower compositions. Sohana depicted images on Bangladeshi culture. Amongst the works done by artist Nipa there was one on the blues of Mediterranean Sea and amongst the works done by Bipasha there was one on ancient Greek civilization. The work was completed in a UNESCO Art Camp.
Bangladeshi ambassador to Greece Jasimuddin extended his hand of support to do everything possible to facilitate successful arrangement of the 2 day long art expo. On the final day he hosted a discussion session on culture and cultural exchange. The session was attended by all the participating artists of the exhibition. Towards the end of the session the ambassador recited a poem penned by him and two poems by Rabindranath Tagore. On behalf of the Bangladeshi team of artists, artist Konka thanked him and other senior members of the Bangladeshi embassy including First Secretary Sujon Debnath and Consular General Farhan, for organising an event that created a welcoming atmosphere not found in any of their previous overseas              exhibitions.
