Rakibul Anwar (b. 1993, Dhaka) is a visual artist based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Anwar investigates how urban and rural environments are affected by construction that errs towards the invasive. His expansive drawings are informed by observations of space, people, structures, found shapes, or other subtler things as well as seemingly arbitrary urban planning that continues to alter the cityscape of Dhaka, and its social and common places.
