Location: fujairah, United Arab Emirates

Based on a foundation of deep love for Arabic calligraphy and the language itself, I create art that gives Arabic and Ottoman Turkish words physical forms using the written words themselves. For instance, drawing a ship using the word for 'ship' in Arabic or Ottoman Turkish, so you literally see what I mean (s.w.i.m). I also often like to give physical form to concepts / ideas like infinity or pain to see how people react to them because I learned through much travel and experiencing of diverse cultures how background can affect the way we see things.
My usage of Ottoman Turkish stems from my time in Turkey. I learned many things, amongst them was how much influence Arabic had on Ottoman Turkish, & subsequently modern Turkish. Because of this and that it was written using the Arabic script, I feel that the language is worth reviving a love for and have personally taken it upon myself to do so, however, tough that may be. My ultimate goal through my art is expressing my love for Arabic.
