From Piranesi to Fawaz
Architectural influence in printmaking has been recorded for centuries. However, Fawaz Rob is the first one who employed his printmaking skills to show Bangladeshi Architecture in a new light. Take a peek…
“Life is a collection of short stories…So are my art.”
Fawaz Rob is a class of his own. He studied product design in San Francisco State University and for his master’s degree he studied Architecture in Florence, Italy. His first solo exhibition was in Paris, where he was featured in ‘Le Parisien’ magazine. He has done residency in many European cities and his art has been displayed in Budapest, Zadar, Paris, Kathmandu, Istanbul, Athens, Phnom Penh and Dhaka. His second solo exhibition was in Croatia, where it was the first open air art exhibition for any Bangladeshi printmaker. Artist Fawaz Rob has spent a long time as a homeless bum in various cities of Europe in his youth. He speaks fluent Italian and has a house in France. He is a self-taught artist and considers him an outsider in the art world. He worked as an assistant professor of Architecture at North South University for ten years and now taking a break from teaching to concentrate completely on art. The most common saying about him is, “He is incredibly talented but makes fun of everything, as if nothing is sacred”. He is highly respected by his students and loved by his selected few artist friends.
