Charu Dadu


A whole trend of art zooming in on one person, who is not otherwise “famous”, is a rare instance in our culture. Momin Ali Mridha, widely known as “Dadu” (grandfather) — at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Dhaka University — has been the subject of drawings, paintings, photographs and sculptures by the teachers and students of fine arts.

Dadu, who died last year as over hundred-years-old, was the first model of Charukola.
