Jahangir Hossain's Paintings
Jahangir hossain exhibited his collection at Clifton Art Gallery in 2005. Jahangir Hossain's painting reflects upon the challenges presented by modern society. Painting in watercolors and mixed media on paper and canvas, his subjects rotate around man and nature entailing geometric forms and lines in subdued and ethereal colors. Traditional themes and rural scenes such as women fetching water with clothes painted in blue, red, yellow ochre, grey, umber and purple neat swirls of strokes or tending to cattle rickshaws in the old city are painted stylistically. As Hossain’s Primary aim is to translate emotions, the Figures are Stylistic rather than realistic.
He have done most of his paintings in color, as it best suited his mood and range of painting and that his paintings could best represent feeling and emotions. At first sight his canvases may seems to be normal representation of man and nature, but after deeper lies the secrets of his subject.
Jahangir likes to combined realism with abstraction. Jahangir is not only drawn towards humanly figures but also has drawn some absolutely beautiful pictures of horses, sometimes combining with a female figure to incite emotional connection between man and the beast.
Jahangir’s paintings have been exhibited in various cities of Bangladesh as well as in United Kingdom, South Africa, Zimbabwe, UAE, Netherlands, Pakistan, Nepal, Thailand and India. Jahangir Hossain's Painting Collection is available at Clifton Art Gallery.
