Selected Artists of Bangladesh

Jahangir Hossain (b. 1964)

Hossain’s work is primarily driven by the expression of human emotion. His figures are stylistic rather than realistic. The intermingling of forms, where one figure dissolves into another expresses the dependence we have on one another for basic emotional needs. The same idea is expressed in his compositions with solo figures which tend to evoke a feeling of longing and loneliness.
