When bound by habit, the artist’s work becomes repetitive. The subject of the picture, the method of drawing, the use of colors are all examined and a new work of art is created. Sometimes the artist himself does not know where his work will end up. An artist’s journey is to find something different. Internationally famous painter Monirul Islam spoke about his life and philosophy in the documentary ‘Monir A Portrait of an Artist’.
The documentary ‘Monir A Portrait of an Artist’ on the artist’s life and work was exhibited for the first time at the Liberation War Museum in Agargaon in the capital on Saturday afternoon. Before the start of the exhibition, distinguished artist Mustafa Monowar and artist Monirul Islam gave a welcome speech. Member of Parliament and cultural personality Asaduzzaman Noor, Chairman of Bengal Foundation Abul Khair Leetu, documentary director Ashiq Mustafa and producer Rubaiyat Hossain were present on the stage.
