A book containing the artworks of artist Maksuda Iqbal Nipa, titled “Maksuda Iqbal Nipa – Episodes of Her Gaze” was launched at the Dhaka Art Summit 2018’s BMW Lounge in Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy on February 6.


Published by Cosmos Books, the launching ceremony was attended by Professor Nazrul Islam, art critic Javed Jalil and Director of Cosmos Group, Masud Jamil Khan.


A talk followed the launching ceremony, where they talked about the life and art of the artist.


Professor Nazrul Islam commented that Nipa is one of the most talented artists of the country.


“We tend to forget about the artist when witnessing their artwork but while observing Nipa’s works, one can converse with her through her paintings,” he added.


Masud Jamil Khan went on to say that Cosmos Books was honoured to publish a book about her, as her works are a searing testament to the depth of human imagination.


“Cosmos Books has been working closely with Gallery Cosmos with the aim to discover, preserve and exhibit Bangladesh literary and artistic works onto an international platform,” he added.


Stressing on the establishment of more galleries and thanking Cosmos Foundation, Maksuda Iqbal Nipa said, “Painting is an integral part of my life. I do not work based on specific form. My surrounding always influenced me to change the way of work.”
