Jamal Ahmed is an artist and professor at the University of Dhaka who was awarded the Ekushey Padak in 2019, Bangladesh's second highest civilian award in recognition for his contribution to the Fine Arts. He graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts from the University of Dhaka in 1978 and then undertook a course at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw from 1980-1982. He subsequently studied oil painting at the University of Tsukuba in Japan from 1982-1984 and also earned his post graduate degree from there in 1986. He adopted acrylics as his main medium in the mid 1980s. The imagery depicted in his works is that of his native Bangladesh. They are wistful and nostalgic portrayals of local workmen and animals and the four lots in the present auction are fine examples of this. His works have been exhibited in India, Pakistan, London, Japan the USA and Norway, and his works are also held at the National Art Gallery in Bangladesh.
