Jiaur Rahman (b. 1979, West Bengal, India)
Rahman’s watercolours are delightful renderings of nature, with the aim of capturing a single moment for eternity. The artist has a close association with rural Bengal, and desires to immortalize the beauty of its fast changing landscape. Not one to be bound to the rural surroundings, Rahman has also captured the cityscape in his works, aiming to portray scenes that are characteristic of Kolkata. Rahman’s watercolours are misty, almost rain-washed, and have an endearing quality. Also he makes figurative paintings depicting the tribal and rural culture of Bengal using bright and vibrant acrylic paints.
Education: Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts, Government College of Art and Craft, Kolkata, 2003.
