FIROZ MAHMUD [fee`rose]
Brooklyn, New York , NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg



ARTIST STATEMENT: Firoz Mahmud runs several on-going art projects crosses with several media including installation, Layapa Art (a Bangladeshi stencil technique), Urgency of Proximate Drawing (NinKI: UoPD), text, video and photographs which are based on Bangladeshi socio-political culture, myth, tradition and pop culture. Mahmud's large-scale project 'sucker'wfp21, a 26 foot fighter aircraft considers the interplay of militarism and war produced through public tax and revenue. His work is a socio-archaeological inquiry into my immediate surroundings. He uses ordinary materials, objects and images from my daily life and local environment to reveal the idiosyncrasies of human nature and the contradictions integral to our contemporary lifestyle. Layapa Paintings are based on regional history and native pholosophy. Video and photographs are supporting media in installation project.
