A group art exhibition titled Symphony, showcasing a range of artwork by Bangladeshi and Indian artists, will end today at Alliance Française de Dhaka in Dhanmondi. 

The exhibition was inaugurated at La Galerie on September 2, where Prof Biman Bihari Das, chairman of All India Art and Craft Society (AIFACS), was present as the chief guest. Prof Nazrul Islam, academic and art writer, attended the event as a special guest. 

The participating artists from India are Biman Bihari Das, Joydeb Bala, Nishi Sharma, Simran Kawaljit Singh Lamba, and Subrata Ghosh. The Bangladeshi artists are Nurun Nahar Papa, Elham Huq Khuku, and Zebun Nahar Nayeem.

Many of the artwork are based on folk themes and traditions of Bangladesh and India. Prof Biman Bihari Das, who was awarded the Padma Shri award, one of India’s highest civilian honours, is exhibiting his bronze and marble sculptures as well as acrylic paintings. 

At the exhibition, Nurun Nahar Papa is showcasing her work as fusion of oriental style and modern design forms. Elham Huq Khuku’s artwork depict the culture and social aspects of Bangladesh.

Zebun Nahar Nayeem has applied motifs as symbol of society in her artwork – depicting realistic, semi-realistic and abstract themes. Subrata Ghosh looks back to the grand tradition of painting and sculpture of the classical era in his art. 

Simran Kawaljit Singh Lamba’s mixed media work is done by dry pastel, molten wires and molten coal tar. Nishi Sharma expresses her deep personal and transformative experiences of this living world directly onto her subject in an abstract form.
