PRINAKA A DAY SKETCHING IN DHAKA by Rob Fairley
A5, 94 pages, full colour printing, perfect bound, softcover, 2019
For twenty-seven years, Scottish artist Rob Fairley has harboured a story – one that had come to have a profound effect on both his personal and artistic life. In 1992, during a stopover in Dhaka, en route from Nepal to the UK, he found himself lost and disorientated, unable to find his way. A chance encounter with a young girl, who would become his guide and guardian, led him on an unforgettable adventure amidst the bustling streets of Dhaka; documented at the time by Fairley, through a series of paintings in his sketchbook. These sketches, along with Fairley’s narration of the day, are available in print for the very first time in Prinaka, a day sketching in Dhaka, a book published by Resipole Studios.
