Brazilian Ambassador praises art show on Hasina



Impressed by the art exhibition on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Brazilian Ambassador to Bangladesh Joao Tabajara de Oliveira Junior on Saturday said each of the artwork shows the powerful strong look of Hasina depicting her mother-like protective character.

“One thing has impressed me very much. I can see one thing the same, the look in her eyes, a penetrating strong look. It shows the character of a strong, mother-like protective person,” he said after visiting the ongoing group art exhibition titled “Sheikh Hasina: On the Right Side of History” at Cosmos Centre in the city, reports UNB.

The Ambassador said Prime Minister Hasina has a very special look in her expression and each of the artwork depicts it well capturing different stages of her life.

Deputy Managing Director of Cosmos Group Masud Jamil Khan welcomed the Ambassador and briefed him about the exhibition.

The Brazilian Ambassador said Cosmos Group brings him back to art and termed Cosmos as one of the greatest sponsors and supporters of art and artists in Bangladesh.

“I’m very impressed and so thankful to be here,” said Ambassador Tabajara, adding that the two countries have so many things in common, so many things to share and to know about each other.

He laid emphasis on exchange of artists between the two countries to further strengthen the friendship between the two countries through art.

Masud Khan said it is necessary to recognise the huge value of art and culture to society as it works as a source of history and emotional healing.

“We [Bangladesh and Brazil] share very close relations and we both share a big interest in football as well,” he said adding that art brings people together.

The exhibition is part of the year-long programme to celebrate the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

“Art is something that carries the viewer through emotions and thoughts. At this troubling time of Covid-19 pandemic, art has become even more important to our society,” said Masud Khan.

He said all the artworks in the exhibition are exceptional and beautiful, and they see something new every time through the photos.
