Google is celebrating the 105th birthday of renowned Bangladeshi painter, educator and activist Shilpacharya Zainul Abedin.
Google Doodle has made an alteration on its Bangladeshi homepage on Sunday (Dec 29), depicting the great artist sitting under a tree and painting Google logo with a brush while another man passes by carrying two pots.
Zainul Abedin is considered as the founding father of Bangladeshi modern art. He strived to preserve and honour Bangladeshi heritage throughout his colorful life.
Zainul Abedin was born along the Brahmaputra River in Mymensingh in 1914. He attended the Government School of Art in Kolkata studying European academic styles.
