Artist of the Week: G M Akand Sabik

Meet G M Akand Sabik, from Bangladesh, Dhaka!

G M Akand Sabik with his photograph, Immurement (2016).

G M Akand Sabik is a sophomore at Miami University, majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Humanitarian Engineering. This semester, Sabik’s work is exhibited in Miami University Art Museum’s Student Response Exhibition (SRE) Conflict & Resolution.

Sabik’s dream job is to be a photojournalist. His favorite arts venue is a tiny museum in his hometown featuring only works of Zainul Abedin. His favorite food is chicken wings and his favorite place to eat in Oxford is La Bodega! His favorite activity outside of school is trekking and his hobbies include photography and tinkering with devices. Sabik works as a photo contributor with the Miami Student and is also involved with Infocus, the photography club on campus.

Sabik chose Miami University because of the university’s visible ideology of what an undergraduate education should be like, and the scholarships helped with his decision too! He also had a work of art exhibited in the Student Response Exhibition last year. He has two photographs on display in the Miami University Art Museum this semester in the SRE.

Come see the exhibition and vote for your top three pieces! Voting will continue until April 12 and the awards ceremony for exhibited artists will be held on April 13, from 5-7pm.
