Bangladeshi, 1978
Md Tokon's artistic style draws inspiration from American Abstract Expressionists, showcasing a journey that spans from Jhenidah and Dhaka to the vibrant art scene of New York City. Having studied at The Institute of Fine Arts, Dhaka University, and honed his skills at The Art Students League of New York under notable mentors like Ronnie Landfield, Mariano del Rosario, and Larry Poons, Tokon is a prolific painter with a rich artistic background.
His artistic journey began at a young age, evolving into a continuous exploration of space, color, and emotion. Exhibiting a mature and skillful approach, Tokon's paintings offer viewers a glimpse into a timeless realm, transporting them beyond the horizon. Unhesitant and direct, his works convey messages of nature, emotion, and passion through intense aesthetic expression.
Tokon's recent abstractions delve into the interplay of color, dark, light, and space, resembling the simplicity, purity, and organic qualities found in lyrics and poetry. Each painting is a highly emotional and sensational experience, reflecting his deep connection to the cities of his upbringing. Influenced by the layers of soil, light, surface, music lyrics, harmony, and minimalism, Tokon creates works that are both poetic and visually captivating.
His paintings, rooted in pure abstraction with a touch of impressionism, focus on expressive colors and melodious areas. Applying multiple layers of paint, infused with gestures and emotional breath, Tokon's creations narrate stories of nature and human emotions in a mysterious manner. Whether exploring interior spaces, inner realms, or landscapes, space plays a pivotal role in his works, closely tied to dreams and illusions.
Tokon's use of color reflects a romantic appreciation for lively hues and soulful textures, contributing to the overall description of emotions rather than objects. Described as "Lyrical & atmospheric abstraction," his art also offers insights into life and spiritual connections. As Tokon's work evolves over the years, it serves as a testament to the artist's profound connection with himself and his ability to touch others through his evolving and timeless creations.
