18TH YOUNG ARTISTS’ ART EXHIBITION
Kamruzzaman wins Best Award in GraphicsCultural Correspondent
Artist Kamruzzaman won the Best Award in Graphics at the on-going 18th Young Artists’ Art Exhibition 2012, for his lithographic work ‘Light to Dark’.
The work, printed from a stone-plate, shows a girl sitting on a chair at her study-table as daylight enters the room through a window. The horizontal artwork repeats the same scene six times, with each repeat gradually changing from light to dark.
According to Kamruzzaman ‘The artwork hints at the continuity of time that begins with a morning sunbeam and gradually enters into night and darkness. It began as a realistic composition which crossed in the semi-realistic and abstract, step by step.’
‘The work took around two months to complete and was sometimes strenuous. Yet I have enjoyed the medium, because of its magnitude and the sheer physical and mental attachment it requires on my part.’
His woodcut work After Rain is also on display at the exhibition, which features people walking on a street while unfolding umbrellas. It hints that even though the rain is over, people are still not secure as they are vulnerable to terrorism, corruption etc.
Kamruzzaman, who has a fascination for lithograph, has developed a unique style of presenting grave issues in an artistic manner. As recognition for his endeavours, he has already clinched three academic awards for creating artworks using this medium, at the annual Shilpacharya Zainul Abedin Art Exhibition, organised by the faculty annually. These awards were Best Media Award in lithograph in 2002 for his realistic work Rest, the same prize for the same medium in 2005 for his
realistic work Woman
with Umbrella and Best Experimental Award in lithograph for his work Composition.
The talented artist also clinched first class first
position, both in his BFA
and MFA examination
from the printmaking
department, and participated at various group exhibitions at home and abroad. At present he is a part-time lecturer at the printmaking department.
