Dhaka, Bangladesh (CNN) – India’s contemporary art has been making a splash on the international scene in recent years, and now Bangladesh is trying to emulate its success.

Monirul Islam is considered one Bangladesh's most influential artists. In the 1960s he moved to Spain on a scholarship, and since then he has represented his native country's art scene abroad. He says it’s still difficult for Bangladeshi art to get noticed overseas.

“You have to go Europe, America, the art world, to expose our art. It's very difficult,” he told CNN’s Leone Lakhani.
