An artist with certain roots in the USA, Javed Jalil has been chosen as the featured artist to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the founding of the "Edward M Kennedy Center for Public Sector and the Arts." The solo painting exhibition "Cryptic Monologue" by the artist Javed Jalil was jointly organised by EMK Center and ARTCON from October 2 to 15 at EMK Center, Dhanmondi 27, Dhaka.
When the artist lived in Los Angeles, his quest to escape from reality made him more observant of the physical world. This quest led him to fuse that physical world with that of his own feelings and observation, visually finding orders in the process. His paintings are strongly rooted from that fusion, interpreting nature and juxtaposition of those visuals to those of brutalities and vagaries of human behaviour.
