How mobility inspires Bangladeshi artists
Artistic exchange is one of the hallmarks of how artists develop around the world. The impact of other cultures is undoubtedly a great source of inspiration for Bangladeshi artists. Speaking on “Mobility and Bangladeshi art,” artists and art critics held a panel at the Dhaka Art Summit on Wednesday. Art critic, artist, and editor at 'Depart' (an art critique magazine) Mustafa Zaman moderated the panel that included Muhammad Iqbal, a PhD student in Fine arts at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, and Shahid Kabir, a freelance artist.

Inspired by Lalon's songs as sung by Farida Parveen, I started making artwork based on Lalon's philosophy,” he said. Kabir briefly described how his stay in Spain the land of Picasso and Gaudi in the 1980s, shaped his perspective as an artist.

Later, inspired by a local tea vendor near my home who had long hair, I began to draw.” He also briefly discussed his work “Lost Civilization” about the destruction of Bamyan Buddhas by the Taliban in 2001.
