Muhammad Zaman

American, born Bangladesh, 1990

Artist Muhammad Zaman’s wide-ranging projects—from works on paper and paintings to Our Colors Make Us Beautiful, his largest work at the time of its creation—are all grounded in language. His compositions come together through an organic accumulation of thought fragments in the three languages that inform his identity: English, the language of his adopted home; Bengali, the language of his homeland; and Arabic, the language of his religion.
