My heritage is from Bangladesh. I have spent most of my adult life living at sea and traveling port to port with my parents on cargo ships. I have been labeled a "rebel" -because I broke away from tradition. My fierce independence & outspokenness makes me an anomaly in the Bengali society. I am a contemporary expressionistic artist with an extremely diverse work style, subject and media and yet I have tried to keep it all tied up with my perspective and personal touch. I use colors along with the blunt nudity of black & white strong lines - which are expressions of my personality. I draw inspiration from life itself. My work is a culmination of fantasy and reality through which I speak of social issues. Recently I seem to be leaning more towards graphite and mixed media collage.
In the past I have worked with CARE, Save The Children-USA and other non -profit organizations. I used my art to promote literacy through visual aides focusing more on womens issues in developing countries.
