Jahangir hossain



A Freelance painter since 1982



Introduction-
Jahangir Hossain, born in Dhaka in 1963.
A contemporary artist born in the city of Dhaka, Bangladesh, Jahangir was self-employed in thethe art fields since 1982. He worked as a free-lance artist throughout his life with the degrees of Masters of Fine Art from Bangladesh. His painting style is western based and modern thus the artist have numerous number of exhibitions , both solo and group shows, in Bangladesh as well as abroad. The western figurative style of his work was mainly inspired from the Oxford Gallery in England.
Artwork-
Jahangir’s art interests lie in the relationships we have with one another and with the nature in which we live. His artworks explore various figures which translates in sometimes a mother and child, as well as couples in loving embrace. Though sometimes exotic, he tries to define emotions, making his artworks rather stylish than realistic. Remaining featureless but still shows the strong emotions and the hidden expression his figures go through. Through his art he aims to influence a single message: we need to love in order to survive. Hossain essentially seeks to question where the true path to happiness lies. He encourages us to celebrate values which are of global as well as individual benefit, with the importance of love and the need to respect ourselves, each other and the environment providing the thematic undercurrents of his latest series of work.

Janhangir Hossain reflects upon the challenges presented by modern society, taking cues from the great Henry Moore. Here we take a closer look at his story.



The point of contact for this Exhibition is Aidan Meller. He is the director of the Meller Merceux Gallery. Meller studied at the University of Exeter and Sotheby’s Institute, and set up the galleries in 1998. He specialises in modern and contemporary art and is regarded as an expert in this fi eld. Meller continues to work closely with private collectors and is often consulted by those who wish to begin, or further develop, their collections with some form of cohesiveness.



Jahangir Hossain’s interests lie in the relationships we have with one another and the environment in which we live. Through his art he aims to stimulate reflection on the human condition and the way in which we respond to the world around us. The pervasive influence of technology continues to divert attention away from personal relationships, conducted face to face in real time. This is a troubling concern for Hossain, who believes strong romantic and familial connections are central to achieving happiness. His work explores this theme using the mother and child motif, as well as couples in loving embrace. The intermingling of forms, whereby one figure almost dissolves into the flesh of the other, expresses how dependent we are on one another for love, nourishment and comfort. This message is powerfully reinforced through his solo figures, which tend to emit an air of despondent melancholy. As Hossain’s primary aim is to translate emotion, the figures are stylistic rather than realistic. Remaining featureless allows them to transcend individual differences and communicate a universal story: we need love in order to survive. Another important thread of Hossain’s work concentrates on the relationship between man and nature. He believes that it is vital for this relationship to be harmonious and balanced if it is to improve our sense of happiness and wellbeing. He is particularly inspired by nature’s ability to act as a positive, grounding force and this is visually expressed in the form of abstract figures carefuly interwoven into the fabric of the landscapes that surround them. The pieces resonate, both in form and ideal, with the work of Henry Moore; whose monumental female figures were designed to reflect the landscape while also becoming part of it. Hossain essentially seeks to question where the true path to happiness lies. He encourages us to celebrate values which are of global as well as individual benefit, with the importance of love and the need to respect ourselves, each other and the environment providing the thematic undercurrents of his latest series of work.

JAHANGIR HOSSAIN

Drawing and Water colour researcher

This is jahangir  from Bangladesh, Especially work in Drawing and painting,
My prime subject is man and nature.
At first sight my canvases may seems to be normal representation of man and nature, but after a little concentration, it slowly reveals the secrets of my subject.   I always try to work with the geometrical lines yet at the same time gives the feeling of space due to my use of subdues colors and specially the selection of ethereal white.
I have been mostly preoccupied with women’s traditional figures of fetching water or tending to cattle in the villages. I also brought the images of [1] “rickshaw”[ vehicle ] in the old city with boy, as often seen even in the urban areas.
I have done most of my paintings in color, as I felt that it best suited my mood and range of painting and that I could best represent feeling and emotions. In one of my painting I have brought in [2] three woman working and collecting water. [3] The Girl on the Road
. The clothes were depicted by blue, red, yellow ochre, grey, umber and purple neat swirls of strokes.
I believe that there is a lot of graceful poetry and rhythm in the manner in which women work in the villages of Bangladesh.
I would like to combined realism with abstraction.. The white pigment is not just a color to me  its breathing oxygen the vibrant sunlight and the innocence of the mother nature and its in habitants.
One visiting a forest or any other dense vegetation may get the feeling of complexity, uncertainly and a sense of insecurity.
I also seem to find solace and attachment to this wilderness, at the same time attracted towards the white sun ray filtering through the dense green, sound of the tropical rain and the movement of rain drops of the lush green leaves. This feeling of happiness evoked me to hope for a beautiful world of harmony.
