Hi! I am Artist Showkot Shawon

With the ambition to become an artist, I have completed my bachelor’s degree in painting from the Faculty of fine art, University of Dhaka, Currently doing my Masters in experimental painting. Much of my time except class is spent traveling 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. The human figure is a favorite subject to paint with a dramatic taste of chiaroscuro. Applying sfumato in paintings is a new challenge nowadays.

Usually, I love to paint nature through impressionism or post-impressionism & figures or portraits through hyperrealism. I use vivid colors in a vigorous application to represent the dramatic light conditions in paintings. The use of colors often becomes an entirely emotional response to the subject while values can remain representational. The love for the 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 the world goes underwater”.
