Monjur Rashid completed his BFA and MFA from UODA under the department of Drawing and Painting. He started working on experimental works such as charcoal, pastel, watercolour, acrylic and mixed media in the fourth year of BFA. His works in bottle and umbrellas largely contributed to exploring him into limelight.

Monjur is going to showcase his 37 artworks in this exhibition under the title of Searching Myself. His works will show the nature of human beings. Everyone wants to discover himself ahead of society and surrounding. Time comes when he is to overcome the situation and finally gets eager to come back is the subject matter of his works in the exhibition. The media he has used in his works are watercolour, acrylic and mixed media.
The exhibition will continue till November 3.
