I express my intellectual longing for creative ideas through Islamic art by fusing colors, lines, dots, and words together to inspire a meaning worth imagining. My work explores universal values of love, life, faith, prayer, beauty, and divine that synthesizes feelings and pictograms through lettering.

I construct new modes of expression based on Arabic writing to first envision then create a style that is exclusively modern Western, including graffiti elements. My work incorporates ink and acrylics on paper or canvas with vibrant nontraditional colors and calligraphy styles.

As an artist and a thinker, I work to align aesthetics in art and morals. Part of my art manifesto is to inspire a modern Islamic art movement to challenge all the cheap plastic imitations worth 99-Cents or less with tacky gold and silver glitter labeled “Made in China” from entering homes and mosques here in the US and to lead a movement where original art is produced and hung at home by individuals with great pride.
