The sale will be showcasing Bangladesh's and Pakistan's most talented modern and contemporary artists such as Jatin Das, Paritosh Sen, Dhiraj Choudhury, Gulshan Hossein, Kanak Chanpa Chakma and Ahmed Parvez.

Ahmed Parvez is one of the most important names in Pakistan's Modernist movement. At the age of just 24 he was presented with the University Shield for Men at the annual All Punjab Art Exhibition. He is recognised as one of the few early Pakistani modernists who was praised by critics in Pakistan, Europe and America. His works merge East and West cultures through the use of vibrant colours. Parvez was part of a two man exhibition with Alexander Calder at the Lincoln Gallery and has been showcased in more than 30 international solo exhibitions.

Another award-winning artist to feature is Kanak Chanpa Chakma, who is from Tabal Chari, a remote hill area in the Rangamati Hill Tract, Bangladesh. As a member of the Chakma people, she captures life of ethnic minorities in Bangladesh and the lives of women in particular. She counts Paul Gaugiun as one of her creative influences as well as her tribal heritage.

She once said: "Looking back into my past and my birthplace, the root of my life, I find a spiritual bondage between me and my native land, which dominates in my work and my very existence".

Her 2014 solo exhibition entitled 'Life is Here', at Bengal Art Lounge in Dhaka, Bangladesh, paid tribute to her Chakma community with more than 80 paintings.

Chanpa's works have featured in more than 190 group exhibitions in her native land as well as internationally, including the United States, Australia, Indonesia, Germany, England and India as well as being exhibited in over 16 solo exhibitions.
