Syed Muhammad Zakir is a visual artist based in Dhaka. Although he was trained as a sculptor at the Fine Arts Faculty of Dhaka University; his interests lie in public performance, and in the environment. Desire, the universe, and cosmic journey are themes that fascinate him. He explores live act, performance art, installation art, and wall art. He uses body movement and instant activity to connect with people, and strives hard to make viewers think and react to his work; it helps make his work satirical. He is also interested in land art and landscaping with materials that are easily available.
