Typography, Art & Decor

18 Oct

Typography and calligraphy are a source of self expression.  Not only is it a form of art, but typography gives new meaning to self expression in decor.

The Story Behind the Paintings

7 Sep

If you’ve followed dab on instagram, then you’d know that there’s always a painting or design in progress.  The story behind all these designs have less to do with business and more to do with experiences.  I started investing in art at an early age.  For me, art has always been about self-expression.

One of my favorite feelings that I enjoy illustrating would be love. In it’s essence, love goes beyond the physical.  Love has no prejudice or restriction . One of my recent abstracts illustrate two people embracing.  These two people could be lovers, friends, a parent, sibling, or relative.  Through shapes and colours, I tried to illustrate the vulnerability love instigates amongst people.

Passion in Works

Past few months I’ve been busy brainstorming and creating new art/design pieces.  Juggling a full-time job while working on art is ultra exhausting, but nonetheless enjoyable. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life,  no one should ever give up on their own talent…It’s through discovering and sharing your talent that one can find a lot of happiness.  And learning to master your own passion can be rewarding in more then one way!

The Story Behind This Painting

3 Dec

One of my latest art pieces was inspired by the mysterious disjoined letters of the ancient Quran scripture, Alif Laam Meem.

If anyone has read the  Quran’s 1400 yr old scripture, which has stayed consistent in it’s classical Arabic,  they will know that the Quran carries timeless wisdom along with mystery.  The disjointed Arabic characters, Alif Laam Meem, are one of the many mysteries.

There are a few philosophies about what these characters mean.  Yet,  scholars still manage to illustrate new philosophies based on  new discoveries.  It’s as if these characters are trying to tell us something. Perhaps it’s signifying how we should handle our interpretation of the “truth”?  When we are unable to realize the exact meaning of something, this should not lead us to automatically reject it,  make any strong assumptions, or adopt a strict stance based on our interpretation.  These disjointed characters should  not only humble our minds,  but inspire us to seek greater meanings and fresh interpretations of all that remains a mystery.

I see Alif Laam Meem as characters that represent true art, a challenge that inspires us to be in awe and  continuously explore the divinity of life.
