Jiaur Rahman creates dreamy watercolors depicting nature, cityscapes, and other beautiful scenes. His aim is to capture “a single moment for eternity”. He does not disappoint. The style is gentle, raw, and nostalgic. Particularly impressive are the rough edges around elements within some the scenes. They provide a natural texture and emphasis. In contrast, it’s also worth noticing that some of the pieces have a soft, almost watered-down feeling. The effect is moving.
Rahman’s paintings portray scenes of Kolkata, India in addition to a series of acrylic figurative paintings depicting the culture of Bengal. Scroll on to enjoy a selection of his portfolio. Much of his work is for sale on his website.
