SPACES Kathmandu- KALA SANGAM was a rare confluence of Nepali and Bangladeshi artists that Kathmandu saw last month. Ten artists from Bangladesh and six from Nepal had a joint exhibition of their representative paintings from 12 to 16 September at Srijana Art College, Uttardhoka, Lazimpat. The exhibition also featured a painting workshop in which 20 Nepali and 10 Bangladeshi artists participated.The collaborative effort and the exchange of ideas is what all need for the development of concept for the artistic venture.

KALA SANGAM, the confluence of two different art traditions, staged a dialogue between the aesthetic forms of the countries. Influencing each other, it paved avenues for the possibility for further aesthetic and cultural interactions.Nature and culture of any country remain as the most important sources of inspiration that incessantly shapes the art of the country.

For sure, Nepal and Bangladesh share distinctly unique art traditions inspired by uniquely different landscapes and cultures.The confluence of these distinct art forms may further be helpful in shaping dialogue and inspiring each other to transgress the geographical as well as cultural borders.Rizuan Nabi, the eminent artist from Bangladesh, showcases his emotive vibes through his abstract landscape.

His work reveals his constant communication with the indigenous landscape of Bangladesh. Sohana Shahreen's spontaneous brush strokes create the motion in her creation. Depiction of human forms in her own individual imaginative concern makes her work unique. The surrealistic approaches in the work of Md. Mahabulbul Islam Babu interact with the viewer in different way.
