③ Artist:

Asif Hoque

Asif Hoque paintings are creolized sagas, combining fragments of his Bangladeshi heritage with his life in Italy and the US. The artist’s composition and use of paint are deeply informed by his fascination with the classical arts. Hoque’s autobiographical and mythological works create in-between spaces that merge the contemporary with the ancient—as they address the vulnerability of multi-cultural identity.
