Urban Landscape Hamtramck 3
About the Artist
I am Forhadul Islam. Sylhet, Bangladesh, is where I was born. Watercolor is my primary medium of choice. I'm based in Hamtramck, Michigan. I am a fan of gray shades. The color gray symbolizes the insecurity of human existence. The houses in my paintings, and nature, will not last forever. It is inevitable that everyone and everything will fade over time. That is the reality of our existence. Inspired by the Bengali folk/mystic, non-dual tradition, I think that when "I" is there, the world is there. We see and feel through ""I", without "I", nothing exists. Understanding "I", embracing "I" is the first step to coming together as a people. My artworks are the only concrete way I have to express my feelings and experiences.
