|Reesham Shahab [Tirtha], Architect & Academic
The human mind is truly a fascinating realm with its incredible complexity and unpredictability. It’s like an endless ocean of feelings, emotions, and thoughts. Reesham Shahab [Tirtha] tries to peer into the uncharted depths of the mind; searching for duality, contradiction and conflict. Walking through the darkest corners, he tries to show ourselves inside out. His illustrations depict our horrid nightmare, deepest agony, strongest rage, unbearable trauma and despair.
Most of the illustrations are figurative, set in a surrealistic landscape done by pencil, pen or ink on paper. One can find himself gazing onto an eye in many of them. The illustrator describes it as the eye of the beholder, most of the time the illustrator himself looking into the mind.
Reesham Shahab [Tirtha], is an Architect and Academic, currently teaching in Architecture Dept. of State University of Bangladesh (SUB) as well practicing Architecture. He is a former graduate of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).
