Art Profiling

PEOPLE’S MUSEUM OF BANGLADESH—the only Bangladeshi art initiative with an international reputation and reach, acts as an impartial facilitator and taste arbiters and, researches, advises, buys, values and manages events, arts, artifacts, crafts and antiques for scripted space—living, corporate, hospital, official, habitat, hotel, rental, business, bazaar — imbuing it with meaning, and beauty.
The following text is culled from the catalog that PEOPLE’S MUSEUM OF BANGLADESH produced for a property development company:
Isn’t home a place where your heart is?
Isn’t home a place where you reside and repose and where the portals are draped in the gold of twilight and all your dread and despair transmute in the warm calculus of hope and health?
But, how a strange and cold architectural space becomes a home, a place where you deposit your dream and desire?
Modern social science, aligned with the ancient Vastu Shastra, assume that, a space transforms into a place, into one’s own physical terrain, only after filtering through cultural structures.
Through Art Profiling– have your home embody Art to put culture back in living place.
Art profiling connects human purposes and archetypical realities with the place where you live.
Art profiling posits your dream-life in your home and transform it into an ecology of seduction and transformative power.
Art profiling situate you in a climate of purity and pastoral rhythm, that is akin to a childhood signal to come home to your true cultural energy, to come closer to yourself…
Not surprisingly one the of the most prominent contemporary French artists proclaims ‎”Living is the most beautiful picture. The rest is just painting”.
We paint a beautiful picture, for you, to live!
