Rashid Choudhury could be termed as one of the pioneers of Bangladesh's modern art movement. He is not merely one of the few young artists of the 1950s who initiated the practice of contemporary art in this country, but also stands as one with distinctive characteristics of his own. He is remarkable not only for his stylistic traits, but also for his variety of mediums of pictorial art. He is not only the pioneer of the art of tapestry in this country, but also the greatest of all in this medium till today.
