Samarjit's folk fascination

Takir Hossain

Samarjit Roy Chowdhury is one of the prominent figures in the Bangladeshi art circuit and is known for the folk motifs in his works. The artist has carved a niche for himself with his hallmark style.
Folk art is quite popular in the sub-continent. Many artists start their journey with folk art and it generally encapsulates the identity, custom and language of a particular place or community. Needless to say, folk elements are in abundance in the works of our maestros like Zainul Abedin, Qamrul Hassan, SM Sultan, Qayyum Chowdhury, Rashid Chowdhury and Abdus Shakoor Shah. Contemporary artists are also experimenting with folk motifs with an urban approach, and this is certainly contributing to enriching Bangladeshi art. Apart from folk motifs, Bangladesh doesn't really have any other background.
Samarjit has always had a great passion for art. As a child he recalls going to fairs and buying clay horses and elephants, various types of dolls and such. Samajit likes to incorporate many things in his works. His recurring motifs are birds, kites, leaves, wild flowers, boats, plants and fish. Scribbles and thick lines are crisscrossed over his paintings. His lines are not polished at all. The uneven lines create an individual language, highlighting a rural essence.
Samarjit uses primary colours and lines to create a flavour of bucolic Bengal. He draws inspiration from indigenous objects such as Lokkhi-shora and poto chitra. His lines and colours are also motivated by clay dolls and ancient ballads. His works present a combination of traditional and modern geometric, abstract forms.
Samarjit also has a propensity for portraying female forms in semi-realistic or realistic manner. The colours frequently used are azure, red, black, yellow and emerald green.
Samarjit indulges in nostalgia, going back to his childhood when life was carefree. Catching fish, flying kites were part of that period of bliss and these elements are also an integral part of his paintings.
Acrylic, pastel, oil and mixed media are predominately used in his works. Adroit application of light and shades are evident. Besides restless curves, geometric forms, rectangular-triangular and broken lines make his images noteworthy. Playing with forms is Samarjit's forte.
Among the avant-garde second generation of contemporary artists in Bangladesh, Samarjit seeks to represent our culture, heritage and traditions. As a painter, he believes he has certain responsibilities to the motherland.

Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee of Post and Tele Communications, Engineer Hasanul Haq Inu urged to form a Public Investigative Commission on August tragedy. He was presenting a keynote paper in a workshop on Zia's direct or indirect involvement in the killing of the father of the nation, Bangabondhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. He introduced Zia as the 3rd Mir Zafar of Bangladesh, while 2nd one is Khandakar Mushtaque.

Chaired by Ambassador Waliur Rahman, in the workshop General Harunur Rashid Bir Protik and Professor Syed Anwar Hossain also presented two other papers on 'Rising of the extremism in Bangladesh after August 1975' and 'Role of domestic and international conspirators in the killing of Bangabondhu.' Professor Abdul Mannan Chowdhury, Journalist Sohrab Hasan, Ambassador Kamaluddin Dr. Muntasir Mamoon commented on the papers. Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Professor AFM Ruhal Haque was present at the workshop as chief guest.

Ambassador Waliur Rahman criticized the government for not withdrawing the grants and honours of the killers like Major Dalim and Major Noor. He also criticized the system of conferring honours in the War of Independence 1971. He said, there are many in our society who have been conferred with grants and honours, who even didn't take active part in the war excepting sitting idle in the Theater road. He urged to snatch the grants and honours even from the beneficiaries of the August Tragedy.

Organized by Bangladesh Heritage Foundation www.bhf-bd.org and Bangladesh Research and Publications, the workshop was held to commemorate the national mourning day 2009, at BILIA on 18th August. Coordinated by Rafique Sulayman

How sweet! I found myself so honoured and humbled I let my tea go cold!
Please feel free to use VEC stuff in any way you like, just as long as you tell me... like you did... which is good... isn't it. It is so hot here I creep out of my bed at dawn so that I can spend a couple of hours working in my allotment garden before it gets to hot to do any thing more than let my tea go cold... I saw it is a damn sight hotter where you are!!!¡~) best greets rod

Hi Katerina!
I know what you mean by quiet and cozy!!
Starnberg has been a sleepy town for most of the summer, the weather has been dreadful. Then these last few days the summer suddendly remembered us and the chaos of visitors has hit us...fireworks, party boats...beautiful! But for us residents somedays it is a nightmare to go about our daily chores. I guess there is never a happy medium.

Our heat wave is 28C!!...lol...and after an average of 17C...this is the most tropical we can be!!

I think I like those bubbly greek sunday papers of yours!! ;-)
Enjoy your beautiful blue sea, Katerina!
cheers
Patrizia
