Azlan Quamer Announced as the Nominated Artist for AURA 2024 by Retro Kolkata Magazine

Azlan Quamer, a recent graduate in industrial design, has been nominated as the exhibitor for the upcoming 'AURA 2024 - International Photography & Art Exhibition'. This prestigious event, organized by Retro Kolkata Magazine, is scheduled to be held at Nazrul Tirtha, Newtown, Kolkata, from January 13 to January 21, 2024.

Azlan, who has been working with graphite and charcoal since the age of 12, initially harbored reservations about pursuing a full-time career in art, concerned about the financial stability it could offer. However, after taking a break post-graduation, Azlan decided to delve deeper into artistic endeavors, a decision that has now culminated in this notable nomination.

The 'AURA 2024' event will be a blend of art and photography, showcasing diverse talents from across the globe. The art exhibition is set to take place from January 13 to January 15, followed by the photography exhibition from January 18 to January 20. The event will conclude with a felicitation ceremony on January 21.

Azlan's approach to art is unique and thought-provoking. Typically working in series, each consisting of 4-5 artworks, Azlan picks up contexts from the surroundings and presents them in multiple, often exaggerated forms. This style not only highlights Azlan's creative versatility but also adds a fresh perspective to everyday observations.

For Azlan, 'AURA 2024' is more than just an exhibition; it's a gateway to the artistic world and a platform to showcase talent and passion. This opportunity marks Azlan's first foray into a major artistic platform, setting the stage for a promising career in the field of art and design. The event promises to be a landmark occasion, not just for Azlan Quamer but for art enthusiasts and connoisseurs who eagerly await the unveiling of new talents and perspectives in the world of art.
