Ekushey Padak winner and noted artist Monsur Ul Karim died at the United Hospital in Dhaka on Monday noon. He was 70.

The Ekushey laureate breathed his last at the hospital around 12 noon while undergoing treatment, confirmed his son Mashroor Ul Karim.

His funeral program will be held at his residence and art studio Bunon Art’s premises, Mashroor said.

Monsur Ul Karim, who was a professor of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Chittagong University, had been suffering from various diseases.

He was born in Rajbari in 1950. He completed his graduation from the Institute of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka, in 1972, and did his Master’s from the University of Chittagong in 1974.

He has recently retired as a professor from the same university.

His semi-abstract compositions with loosely drawn figures, organic and free-flowing lines, and child-like drawings and scribbles powerfully evoke the landscape of riverine and rural Bangladesh.

Karim received the Ekushey Padak in 2009. Notable among his honours are the Grand Award in the 8th Indian Triennial International, New Delhi, in 1994, and the Grand Award in the 6th Asian Art Biennale in 1993.

He has held over fifteen solo exhibitions. He also received Sultan Padak for his contributions to Bangladeshi art in 2014.
