For Bookmark, ArtAsiaPacific invites an artist to spotlight some of their online sources of inspiration. This week we asked Firoz Mahmud.

Tokyo- and Dhaka-based Firoz Mahmud makes paintings and sculptures that examine social, political and religious belief systems. After completing a BFA and MFA at the Institute of Fine Arts at Dhaka University, Bangladesh, Mahmud is a PhD candidate at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, Japan. His work has recently been shown in the Sharjah Biennial, United Arab Emirates (2011), and Ota Fine Arts, Tokyo (2011). He is currently an artist-in-residence at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in New York.
