Selected Artists of Bangladesh

Abdus Shakoor Shah (b. 1947)

During his time at the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, Shakoor came in contact with the Revivalist Group which sought to restore the indigenous traditions and ethnic art. Shakoor mixed figures with symmetrical semi-abstract forms for dramatic effect. Later Shakoor began to depict scenes from Bengali folk literature and incorporated calligraphy into his work.
