Jai Bangla: Visual memoirs of a freedom fighter


Shahabuddin Ahmed is one of the most recognised painters of our country who carved a niche in the '70s -- a time when a few artists started to experiment, and some painters were busy establishing a personal hallmark. Shahabuddin profoundly established himself as an ardent and devoted painter over the decades. His signature traits are vibrant figures and their poignant movements. The movements are quite dissimilar from those of his contemporaries. Each movement makes what amounts to a distinct look and language. The language is closely connected to the time of the country's turbulent birth and its significant aspects. His paintings encapsulate ecstasy, affections and torment. He wants to visually document a certain time, moments, and he has a great tendency to mingle an era with others.
