  • Badal | Rickshaw Art Archive

    বাদল/Badal: 4th Solo Painting Exhibition of Artist Nobo Kumar Bhadra ​ "The beginning was about living not love." Starting his journey painting cinema banners in the 1980s, Nobo Kumar Bhadra has now established a recognizable footprint in the rickshaw painting scene of Bangladesh. His works depict the evanescent days of old cinema protagonists and antagonists, their cinematic expression so fumbled with bold strokes; heritage and mythoi of Bengal; anthropomorphic animals like fox, such and lion riding boats, having a day at the jungle- all drawn with bright saturated colors vibrant with life. The artist's 4th solo exhibition will be hosted by the Department of English, Jahangirnagar University. This three-day exhibition starting on 25th September 2016 will feature his artworks (including painting and installation art) that amalgamate the folk and the fantastic. ​ Date: 25-27 September 2016 Venue: Department of English, Jahangirnagar University Photo courtesy: Siam Raihan Nafis ​ Installation Shots Badal (22) © Siam Raihan Nafis Badal (21) © Siam Raihan Nafis Badal (4) © Siam Raihan Nafis Badal (22) © Siam Raihan Nafis 1/22 Go back
