As an emerging artist of a Pakistani-Muslim heritage, my work represents the many different cultures that I have come to experience when living abroad. Aimed at illustrating the significant religious experiences that I personally have encountered, my current artwork makes connections to both my culture and my Muslim religion as a means of traversing my spiritual journey. I am interested in Islamic and Mughal Art and Architecture, as Islamic art seeks to portray the meaning and the essence of objects and beings, rather than their physical quality or form. It reveals and reflects on cultural values to show how Muslims find their spiritual realm; which then allows the artist or the viewer to experience art that ultimately enhances their spiritual belief, becoming closer to God in the process. The art of Islam is a dream of the Paradise, reflection of the Universe and the Hereafter. “God is beautiful and He loves beauty.” [Sahīh Muslim (911)] This phrase is the starting point in my exploration into spiritual journey. I am reflecting the ideas of beauty that is profound and visible to people with a strong spiritual connection, and so far, I have linked the word Beauty with God and His creations, as if reflecting a dream of paradise and the universe.
