Iqbal Bahar CHY
Iqbal Bahar Chy, born in Cox's Bazar, completed his B.F.A in printmaking in 2010 and
M.F.A in the same subject in 2012 from the University of Development Alternative
(UODA). Iqbal participated in 35+ group exhibitions. He has participated in many
national and few International Art Camps and workshops. National Art Museum of
China, Bangladesh National Art Gallery and some private collectors collected his
artworks. Iqbal seeks himself in the matrix of surfaces to corroborate the nuances of his
understanding. His medium, printmaking itself is a method where instinctual and
surprising visual effect recognizes its antiquity.
