Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
While talking about cartoon architect Dr Sajid Bin Doza Bonny says,
“It is the authentic medium to deliver the real essence of humour.”
Having visited many parts
of Bangladesh and by immersing
himself in different social structures, Bonny was able to identify that life is sometimes convergent in nature even when the culture and its underlying
contexts are different to each other; but life is simple and people try to keep their lives cheerful if possible. His
cartoons are sourced from this
simplicity and je ne sais quoi.
The sixth solo cartoon exhibition titled Janala: Cultural Pattern of the Delta Land by Dr Sajid Bin Doza Bonny is going
on at La Galerie of the Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the city’s Dhanmondi area now. The exhibition was inaugurated on January 16.
Architect Kazi Golam Nasir, President of Institute of Architects Bangladesh (IAB) graced the occasion as the chief guest while eminent cartoonist Ahsan Habib also attended the inaugural
ceremony as the guest of honor.
The concept of the exhibition - Janala, (Window) is about ‘observation.’ Beginning as a little child’s beautiful dear window at the edge of the room,
‘observation’ has a profound intimacy with windows that is powerfully
nurtured over the span of
a person’s life.
Through the windows, one may see the beauty of nature, smiles and sorrows of individuals, activities of the simple people of the delta land, culture, habits and many other things. With the change of time, one may see - through that
window - one’s dreams or aspirations, and patterns of a longer life. In this
exhibition, Bonny interprets these windows using the global and universal language of cartoon.
Dr Sajid Bin Doza was born in Rajshahi Division, head quarter of North Bengal. His inspiration was those historic monuments of North Bengal and drew
a goal to be an architect since
childhood, achieved awards in
painting, cartooning and clay modeling at home and abroad. Dr Sajid Bin Doja completed his post graduation in architecture from BUET in 2008.
After that he completed his PhD in History of Arts and Heritage Studies from the University of Evora, Portugal in 2016. Since 2009 Dr Sajid Doza is the
fulltime faculty and assistant professor of architecture department in
BRAC University.
The exhibition will continue
till January 24.  n
