Prominent artist and former chairman of Bangladesh Shishu Academy Mustafa Monwar on Saturday said an artist needs to find joy in creativity, not in making money.
“It doesn’t matter how much you earn with artworks. You’ll have to put in your efforts in arts for your own happiness,” he told the third edition of Art-Echo, a monthly talk-show of Cosmos-Atelier 71.
The event titled ‘Akajer Manush’ was held at its studio at Cosmos Centre in the city. Mustafa Monwar, an Ekushe Padak winner, said, “The fact is that I respect my devotion to art and see it as my biggest achievement.”
Artists, poets, photographers, architects and filmmakers, among others, attended the session.
