Hi! I am Artist Showkot Shawon


With the ambition to become an artist, I have completed my bachelor degree on painting from the Faculty of fine art, University of Dhaka, Currently doing my Masters on experimental painting. Much of my time except class is spent travelling around the country looking for inspiration for painting subjects. The many fountains, glens and isles of the beautiful country are amongst favorite subject matter for intense atmospheric and impressionistic oils. Human figures are favorite subject to paint with dramatic taste of chiaroscuro. Applying sfumato in his paintings is his new challenge nowadays.

Usually I love to paint nature through impressionism or post-impressionism & figures or portraits through hyper realism. I use vivid colors in a vigorous application to represent the dramatic light conditions in his paintings. Color use often becomes an entirely emotional response to the subject while values can remain representational. The love for native countryside is portrayed in my work through an ebullient energy with which I handle the color with palette knife and brush. Painting is breathing to me! Indeed I am a soul to paint the times through colors on canvas!

Even, Nowadays I spend my time painting in my studio on the painting series “If world goes under water”.
