Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
The solo painting exhibition titled Beyond the Horizon by artist Pervaj Hasan Rigan is being held at the La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD)
in the city’s Dhanmondi area now.
Noted artist Samarjit Roy Chowdhury inaugurated the exhibition as the chief guest, while Prof Abul Barq Alvi, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka and Jamal Ahmed, Professor of the Department of Drawing and Painting, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka and Mohammad Ezzat, Ambassador of Egypt to Bangladesh, were present as the special guests on the occasion. Bruno Plasse, Director of AFD, gave the
welcome speech on the occasion.  
Born in Barisal in 1988, Pervaj Hasan Rigan completed his BFA and MFA from the Department of Drawing and Painting, University of Dhaka.
The young artist prefers to work with oil paint and charcoal and have produced a number of series. From the very
beginning of his education,
the remarkable quotation by eminent artist Murtaja Baseer, ‘The sweetest expression of the deepest sorrow
evokes art’ inspired him.
During his BFA, Rigan produced his very first self-analysis series Freedom of Soul based on his self-portraits. His next series of work was The Illusive Happiness that continued on the previous theme. During his MFA’s first part,
the artist came up with the
figurative series Agony of Intellect Conflict focusing on the theme of advancement of machines. He tried
to portray the loss of human emotions due to the constant usage
of modern-day technologies.
Through his work The Captive Soul, Rigan tried to explore the spirituality of human souls and uncover the
mysteries hidden within; this was done during the second part of his MFA.  After completing his
institutional training, the artist delved deeper into self-exploration
as well as humanity and produced two consecutive series
Immortality and The Beautiful
Curse. During this time, he also
did a portrait-based series titled
The Homo sapiens.
His latest series Beyond the Horizon that is being put on display at the
La Galerie features 20 artworks.
He explored the position of humanity in the universe and the cosmic
relationship of souls.
Among his many accolades, Rigan scored the best drawing award and medium-based award in 2010 and 2011 successively in the Annual Art Exhibition of the Faculty of Fine Arts, University
of Dhaka. In 2012, he won the grand prize in the exhibition hosted
in Japan by the Gloria Foundation.
The exhibition will
continue till May 24. n
