Shilpa O Shilpi
Shilpa O Shilpi is a bi-annual Bengali arts magazine. Bangladesh boasts of a vibrant art scene; artists routinely participate in regional and international art exhibitions, and a small but robust art market is solidly rooted in the country. Bengal Foundation first published Shilpa O Shilpi in August 2011, with the intention of highlighting and promoting arts in Bangladesh. Distinguished painter Qayyum Chowdhury served as the president of the editorial board since its inception, and it was under his guidance Shilpa O Shilpi has become a leading arts journal in the region. The magazine depicts an honest reflection of the Bangladeshi arts scene, but it also prioritises art and cultural endeavours from around the globe. Renowned artist Rafiqun Nabi presently serves as the President of the editorial board.
