Biography Zainul Abedin
Zainul Abedin was a painter and a political activist involved in the development and advocacy of fine arts in his country from the end of the British colonial era through the tumultuous decades of Bangladesh's infancy. He is also considered by many to be the most foundational figure in Modern Bangladeshi art. His best-known works are his sketches in Chinese ink on simple packing paper portraying the horrors of the great Bengal famine of 1943—a catastrophe that killed at least 3 million people, due in large part to British food diversion and hoarding. Still, his work transcends the strictly political, attaining a broader humanism that is timeless and cross-cultural.
Abedin studied painting at the Government School of Art in Calcutta from Christie’s, Mumbai
