Farzana Ahmed Urmi

Farzana Ahmed Urmi

Fmale

b. 1980, Khulna

 

Farzana Ahmed Urmi’s work is heavily influenced by the people she encounters in her everyday life. Her canvases are full of human stories, some from people that she knows only from a glance on a street or from television, and others from people close to her—but personal contact in variable proximity is important to her work. She has had solo and group exhibitions in Dhaka and Tokyo, participated in art camps and residencies in Dhaka, Barcelona and Kyoto, and is part of the Yinchuan Biennale 2016.
