Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Tuesday said that artists have done a fabulous job by pouring their hearts and souls in their artworks on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
The minister made the remarks while virtually inaugurating a two-month-long group art exhibition titled “Sheikh Hasina: On the Right Side of History” featuring 21 artists at Cosmos Centre in the city.
Writing something is easy and saying something is even easier, but depicting something in artworks is harder as it requires greater imagination and creativity, he said.
Emphasising the importance of artworks to face the anti-liberation forces, Dr Hasan Mahmud said heart-wrenching love and dedication are needed for creative works like art and writing.
What these artists did, they did it with their heart-wrenching love and affection they have for her (Hasina) in their hearts. So, I express my gratitude to them, he said.
The minister also thanked Gallery Cosmos for arranging the art show.
Speaking at the programme, Enayetullah Khan, Chairman of Gallery Cosmos, said the exhibition has been arranged as part of the birth centenary celebrations of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
He said Sheikh Hasina has been working with utmost dedication and sincerity for building prosperous Bangladesh risking her life and raising above personal interests.
This sacrifice and commitment inspire us all. Today's exhibition is just a small reflection of our such commitment, he added.
