Dhaka Art Summit returned to the heart of Dhaka this month with 300 talented artists. It’s the first time we attended the summit and we’re so excited. We’ve prepared this first timer’s guide so you know some of what to expect next time. These were Artist Trekker's must-see.Read More
One of the exciting ways to discover artists is to see them in their natural habitat at their studios. To help get to know these talented artists, we share their works-in-progress, learn about what inspires them, and see their work on an easel or stacked up against studio walls. These were taken in 2010.
Like these, many of Kanak Chanpa Chakma's paintings are of the Chakma people, an ethnic group concentrated in the Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh.
We liked it so much the first time we went back the next year.
We were pleased to take part in the AGC spring exhibition. More than 70 entries submitted and on April 9th the winners of the Sixth Annual AGC Spring Art Exhibition were announced. The Best in Show awarded to one of ours, Kanak Chanpa Chakma's "Returning Home!" To top it off, we also got the second place, Ariful Islam's "Charukola."
