Influenced by my Saudi and Pakistani roots, a versatile artist and Arabic calligraphist, I have a passionate interest in the art of the Islamic world. My work is a culmination of abstract, modernistic painting techniques and ancient arts of Islamic illumination arabesque patterns, calligraphy and sacred geometry. I love to work with mixed media and to do experiment with shapes and stencils.
I believe that the art of Arabic calligraphy is a lifelong learning, it is a journey where you don’t just learn how to write letters, but your study some different aspects of human experiences such as humility, patience, self-discipline, and adaab (manners). Every single calligrapher becomes a teacher because what you get, you give and when you have the experience you have to pass it on.
I won several art competitions and participated in various group exhibitions in UAE, Belgium and New York.
