International Exhibitions — Shawlin
In July 2020 this year, I decided to participate in the First International Image meeting organized by RINC, Mexico, Verne and the right to imagine! During childhood, I was familiar with books of Jules Verne and this was a very good opportunity to get in shape and enrich my knowledge. I started by reading articles and extracts from his books. A few YouTube videos have also helped in the process. So one afternoon, I began illustrating a portrait of the author in my Smartphone while listening to some of his remarkable quotes in the background.
The place of power in Bangladesh is the premises of Supreme Court of Bangladesh which is the highest court of Law in the country. The protest started when a monument of Lady Justice was erected by a local artist. Some religious hardliners held protest for months greeting the removal of the monument as it was said to amount to ‘idol worship’. It was demanded that the monument be destroyed. After months of protest, the Government then decided to restore the monument to a different location.
