Inspiring Art Peices
ASHEEQ AN INSPIRED INTRODUCTION
Asheeq Art started in 2010 and Alhumdulilah, has gone from strength to strength. Reviving Arabic calligraphy and Islamic art through modern-day methods is more than just a strap line for me but something I strive to achieve in every piece I create.
My inspiration predominantly comes from the holy Quran but is also heavily influenced by islamic patterns, architecture and geometry.
Quite often lessons of hope, fear and guidance inspire me to create a piece as a reminder, first and foremost to myself and of course to anyone who views the piece.
My main focus is on the different ways Arabic calligraphy can be demonstrated. The vast variety of Arabic scripts are timeless and possess a deep aesthetic value and discipline.
When I start working on a piece, I first try to visualise the final look. I then break this down into a production methodology. Thereafter begins the process of experimentation.
House Visits... wherever possible, can also help. I will prefer to get a view of the room in which the final artwork will rest. Given modern technology with Skype and Videos, I can work with clients all over the world.
Each piece is created by hand, involving a detailed design process and unique materials. I have worked on for example slate, papyrus paper, gold leaf, Swarovski, glass, mirrors, tiles, and even stone.
