This painting was showcased in the Malaysia-Iran Islamic Art Exhibition 2022.
For centuries, the beauty of Islamic arts has impressed the entire world.
There are various forms of design in Islamic art, and the geometrical patterns are one of the most distinctive ones. The Kufic script, which is a style of calligraphy, comes in hundreds of styles and forms and carries a profound beauty.
This painting was created by combining two elements, the Islamic geometrical patterns and the Kufic script. The abstract background with the multiple shades of colours, was added using a blending technique to form a decorative design to the look.
The words written in Kufic reads out as “Bismillahirrahmanirrahim”, which means “In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious and The Most Merciful”. “Bismillahirrahmanirrahim” is recited in many occasions throughout the day, usually at the beginning before something is performed, for example, before reading the Holy Quran.
Hence the painting is titled The Beginning.
