Abu Kalam Shamsuddin

At heart I’m an artist; my passion is creating engaging and inspiring works of art in a whole host of different media. But I’m also committed to the development of Fine Arts in Bangladesh; in fact, I believe that Fine Arts, the study and making of visual art, is crucial to the holistic advance of my country. As a faculty member in one of our country’s finest institutions, Khulna University, I am privileged to have the opportunity to share my joy for Fine Art every day with my students. I hope that I can be an inspiration to them, an encouragement to my highly-valued colleagues, and a small part in the unstoppable cultural movement in this world, called art.

I completed my Masters of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting at Rajshahi University. Now I am a faculty member in the Drawing and Painting Discipline at Khulna University. Before that I worked as on the faculty of Daffodil International University in the Multimedia and Creative Technology Department. Before that I worked at Santo-Mariam University of Creative Technology in the Graphic Design and Creative Technology Department. My research interests are visual arts, contemporary art of Bangladesh, typography, concept art and digital painting. I take both theory and sessional classes in my discipline i. e. History of Western Art, Aesthetics and Art Appreciation, Art Material and other relevant sessional courses. I have teaching experience in the topics of typography, graphic design and introduction to multimedia and have presented papers on these topics at various national and international conferences.
