JOLOKABBO 2 is enriched with scenic beauty of artworks. Such beauty is native to water color paintings conceived of this region of Bangladesh.

Realism is the branch of artwork where artists share how they see reality. There is a current trend to take realism to ‘photo-realism’ where the art work looks like a camera photograph. The perfectionist who achieves such feat does deserve an applause. But art is not only about perfection, it is about seeing perfection in imperfection.These water color artists have preserved the rawness of original water color paintings with bold strokes, subtle blending, and crafty contrasts while trying to reinvent realism in their own way. However, art is not about perfection, it is about seeing perfection in imperfection, and these artists clearly know where to detail, when to stop.

Water color artworks are smooth and figurative by nature. Much of the works in this event are therefore object based; one of the noticeable objects being ‘boat’. However, rural and urban roads, houses; trees, green fields; dusks and dawns are clearly the sources of interest.


Immerse into a dialogue between color and water, often capturing the beauty of man’s love of his land and sometimes telling a stormier tale: Vibrant works by 26 watercolor specialists at Edge Gallery explore memories of the land in its various seasons. Presented by Edge, The Foundation as a continuation watercolor show, discover a spectrum of emotions portrayed through vivid paintings of nature, captured in the form of landscapes and riverine life.
