Jiaur Rahman imbues his works with a spontaneous energy that is truly magnificent. Whether the young artist is painting a riverside, a countryside, a cityscape, it is for him all images of nature. So along with breathtaking art works of wind-tossed boats at the riverside, there are also rain-washed cityscapes painted with equal dexterity. This skilled watercolourist, captures the inherent mood of the subject, playing with the vital elements of light and shade sensitively and yet boldly, creating a work of art ‘awash’ with spontaneity. Also he makes figurative paintings depicting the tribal and rural culture of Bengal using bright and vibrant acrylic paints.


Born in 1979, Rahman earned his Bachelor's degree in Visual Arts from the Government College of Art and Craft, Kolkata, in 2003. Rahman's watercolours are delightful renderings of nature, with the aim of capturing a single moment for eternity. The artist has a close association with rural Bengal, and desires to immortalize the beauty of its fast changing landscape. Not one to be bound to the rural surroundings, Rahman has also captured the cityscape in his works, aiming to portray scenes that are characteristic of Kolkata. Rahman's watercolours are misty, almost rain-washed, and have an endearing quality. He has a unique way of identifying cities with colours; in one of his interviews, Jaipur, he says is pink, Kolkata, grey, and Ahmedabad, yellow.

  • Testimonial

    I have been working with Mojarto.com since 2006 and I have sold many of my artworks through them. I have never seen such transparency with the artist anywhere else in other galleries. Artworks uploading system is also very easy for the artist and therefore it is very helpful to sell paintings online through Mojarto.com. I have never felt any difficulties from the Mojarto team they have been always supportive and extremely helpful. I would like to tell other Artists and collectors who have never worked with them to please try to know them better.
