Shamiron's magnificent woodwork displayed

Update : 02 Aug 2013, 02:09 AM
A 13 day solo woodwork exhibition of Shamiron Dutta titled "Shekorer Gaan" has been arranged by Chayakor Communications at Shilpangon gallery.   Shamiron is a self taught artist with an innate understanding of the craft. His devotion to nature and interest in natural objects has made him a sculptor.   For fourteen years, he has searched for his forte in various shapes and forms of nature and that's how he ended up working with the roots of Mahogany and Litchi tree.    Keeping the actuality of the roots, he just assembles them in his own rhythm. Although he has first started as a sculptor doing crafty works, eventually he ended up making furniture with his own signature style.   The roots, in their own pattern with the touch of Shamiron's artistic hand become unique pieces of sculpture.   His furniture as a wood work is elegant yet avant-garde with a posh simplicity.    This is the eighth solo show of the artist. He leads a very simple life and works when inspired only. Most of his materials are collected from various sources and recycled through his art. He works from his home town in Shahrasti, Chandpur, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.   His miniature crafty show pieces are priced from Tk 200-5000 and his furniture can be used in luxurious interior design ranging from taka 5000-200000 maximum.   The exhibition has been inaugurated by eminent architect and art critique Rabiul Hussain and the special guest was famous artist Shishir Bhattacharya. Many other known faces from the art arena such as artists, art enthusiasts, art collectors were also present at the ceremony.   This must see show for art lovers will continue till August 10.
