The Mannequin

Dec 14, 2017 |

His mannequin series are inspired from the motifs of rickshaw paintings of Bangladesh. His painting exploits the decorative lines of Nepali traditional paintings by cutting the glittering sheets of rickshaw paintings. In this single work, we can see and feel the forms of photography, painting and the shiny sheets of rickshaw that are merged together. His self portrait manipulated how he wants to escape from the complexity of contemporary society.
