Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
Gallery Chayamachi, an art gallery located in the Japanese city of Osaka, hosted a solo show by Bangladeshi artist Mohammad Iqbal. The exhibition, titled Joyful Assembly, features 20 artworks.
Artist Iqbal informed that the visitors were ‘deeply moved’ by his artworks, especially a live show of painting
conducted by him. Human eyes
figured prominently in the live
painting, the release said, with the
visitors mostly attracted to the way the eyes were drawn, with different emotions expressed through them.
Mohammad Iqbal is mainly
recognised for his skilled drawings and impulsive spirit. He is mainly
distinguished for his theme-based paintings. His canvases are engrossed with various visible and shadowy
figures. His protagonists on canvas are usually exploited people and mystics. The difference between the economic structures of different communities leads him into portraying their lifestyles. From the onset, his works have mirrored the bitter realities of the society. His
paintings effectively touched the heart of art enthusiasts because of his sensible approach. The subject has been addressed at times with abhorrence against injustice and often with anxiety and rage caused by it. This is the grist to the mill in Mohammad Iqbal’s case.
Figures have taken a prominent place in Iqbal's paintings. Agony seems to get the focus. Iqbal has been working on the lives of Bauls and sages. It should be mentioned that the artist firstly concentrates on his theme, than he pours his labour to other technical aspects. The Baul way of life and the philosophy attract him the most as he finds
spirituality and sanctity in them.
The artist is most comfortable working on a large canvas, as his themes and compositions demand space. His work
is elucidated by a powerful interplay of figures and space, helped by strong and sweeping brushstrokes.
While talking about his artworks Iqbal said, “I haven’t always maintained one particular method, style or technique.
I like to articulate the process of thinking and then add sensation, emotion
and personal experience.”
It is noted that Mohammad Iqbal, who teaches painting at Dhaka University, has previously participated in several
solo and group shows in Japan. n
