Islamic Art is a key feature of the early Islamic culture. Ever since the 7th century, Islamic artistic expressions have been produced, developed and exhibited in Muslim inhabited territories throughout the world. Visual Arts is a dominant art from in Islamic culture, especially Islamic Wall Art. An interesting thing about Islamic Visual Art is that it is non-representational. This is primarily due to Aniconism. Nevertheless, Islamic wall art features some of the most picturesque designs and exquisite patterns. Islamic wall art can be divided into three main elements, geometric patterns, calligraphy and vegetal patterns.

The earlies Islamic wall art was inspired by Byzantine Art also known as the Early Christian Art, Roman Art and Sassanian Art. Later over the years, as the Islamic civilization expanded its art was also influenced by Central Asian Nomadic tribes as well as Chinese Art forms, Islamic Civilization was not geographically bound. It was spread wide through the world connecting different cultures races and communities. Same was the case for Islamic Art. Every region had its very own style of Wall Art yet they all followed the general Islamic thematic. Islamic Art as a concept is often viewed critically by modern art historians. It is argued that it is a western idea to generalize art forms during the time into Islamic Art. However, the former argument about each region having its unique art while following a general theme which is only found in “Islamic Art” makes   the latter critique invalid.

Geometric Patterns are a key element of Islamic Wall Art. It is heavily used in most art designs since figurative images are forbidden in the religion. Geometric patterns largely consist of squares and circles that form an intricate, overlapping and interlaced pattern. The geometric patterns used in Islamic wall art are based on 6 -13-point patterns and some even go as further as 16 points. Other than this, the use of floral designs coupled with geometric patterns is a common technique in Islamic Wall Art. Together, the linear lines and patterns alongside vegetal designs form arabesques.

Islamic Wall Art is also reliant of calligraphy. The artistic attempt of writing Arabic words as well as alphabets is commonly seen in most if not all wall arts. Apart from Arabic, Islamic wall art calligraphy also features Persian, Urdu and Ottoman calligraphy. A major reason for using Arabic is the Muslim Holy Scripture, the Holy Quran. As it is an all-encompassing book of guidance for Muslims, easily spot Quranic verses in Muslim Wall Art. While calligraphy is used heavy in Islamic Art it does not stem of Aniconism. However, one can only understand the importance of written text the civilization.

Abstract Wall Art & Canvas Prints

Abstract art is considered to be a recent phenomenon. Abstract art prints use shapes, colors, lines, and even patterns for the display of an artistic expression. This visual art form is regarded as a recent concept because most mainstream abstract art dates back to a hundred or two hundred years ago. However, it is argued that abstract art goes a long way back and abstractions are even present in caves. This is because abstract art is fundamentally a portrayal of an exaggerated reality. It also means that it is not necessary for abstract art to undertake any ideas or borrow any understanding from reality or any other contemporary art forms.

Visual language is the foundation of abstract art. There are three popular abstract art styles that are seen on abstract art prints. These include dada, action painting, and non-objective abstract art prints. Dada abstract art prints were first made in Zurich, Switzerland. This abstract style was used by artists in the 20th century to critique the socio-economic conditions of society. It was adopted by many artists after World War I when artists, as well as people, felt a disconnect from society due to the destruction it caused. Society was disoriented and horrors of war had penetrated deep among the people. As a result, this form of abstraction was used to convey messages of peace and critique about the conditions the war had led them to.

Action Painting abstract prints are made by throwing paints on the canvas to create a complex yet equally mesmerizing image. A common understanding is that the intricate patterns of the paint reflect the complexities of the society. Others consider this as a reference to dancing and physical gestures of similar form. Action painting abstract prints do not have a fixed meaning attached to them.

Non-objective abstract art prints are composed without fixating on a certain object. Instead, the artist used shapes and color pallets in a manner that real-world emotions are depicted. The interesting thing about nonobjective art is that it may feel and be viewed differently by each individual. Thus, each art piece has a unique meaning to its observer. Usually, such prints are painted on larger scales and can get intimidating to its viewers sometimes.

Abstract wall art is one of the major art forms that exist in the postmodern world and is practiced more often when compared to other art forms. Abstract art became a burgeoning concept in the 20th century when artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Cézanne, Gauguin, and Seurat were seen using the style. The quick development of the art form resulted in a huge fan following. Artists of the post-modernist world rely heavily on abstract techniques to design art prints. Abstract art prints not only prove to be a great addition to the décor but are heavily sought after.

Abstract Wall Art

The formal word used for wall art is a mural. Mural is basically a Spanish word that means to be attached to a wall. In the world of art, a mural is a painting or any other art form integrated with a wall or a ceiling. Thus, a mural also informally known as wall art is any combination of graphics that is designed and painted on a wall and sometimes on a ceiling.

Fresco uses dry-powder pigment infused in water that is applied on a fresh layer of plaster, mosaic is made by sticking small colored stones on the wall, graffiti is made by painting on the wall and marouflage involves canvases placed on walls with the help of adhesive. Each technique has evolved over time and has emerged as an individual art form but generally, they all fall under the category of Wall Art.

Islamic Calligraphy

                                                            Islamic Calligraphy Wall Art

One of the most prominent features of Islamic art is Islamic calligraphy. Since Islamic visual art is non-representational, Islamic calligraphy is one of the most popular art forms in the Muslim world. It involves writing alphabets that are derived from the sacred Muslim Scripture, The Holy Quran. But it is not solely based on that. Islamic Calligraphy also involved beautifying texts from other languages such as Urdu, Persian, and the Ottoman. Calligraphy in Arabic is also known as Khatt Arbi which roughly translates to Arabic designs or lines. It is commonly believed that Calligraphy became a major art form in Islamic Art because it avoids figurative representation however, this is not the case entirely. Reading and writing have a profound place in the Islamic religion. The first revelation revealed upon the Holy Prophet(PBUH), also stated that the first thing created by God was a pen. Therefore, Calligraphy also has religious importance and is considered a craft of great importance and value.

Islamic Calligraphy has been practiced since the beginning of the 7th century in Muslim territories throughout the world. The two major art forms that have emerged as a result of this are Kufic and Naskh. The Islamic civilization was spread all over the world, therefore regional variations are part of the two major styles mentioned previously.  Overall, Islamic Calligraphy comprises 5 styles, Naksh, Nasta’liq, Diwani, Thuluth, and Reqa. Traditional calligraphy technique requires the use of a pen also known as a kalam locally. It is made from dried reed or bamboo.

Islamic calligraphy is not restricted to paper and has been applied to numerous materials such as tiles, vessels, stone, and carpets to produce exquisite and picturesque calligraphy ornaments. Long before the paper was introduced, calligraphy was also performed on papyrus and parchment. The advent of paper acted as fuel to the fire as libraries in the Muslim world were full of texts and books that contained countless ideas and subject matters camouflaged in between the layers of beautifully written letters and words. Calligraphy was further developed and supported in 692 when the coinage was reformed by the Islamic Caliphate. The coins then used Islamic phrases and verses from the Quran. These were common on dinars and other gold coins of high value.

In the modern world, Islamic Calligraphy still holds its exalted status but was transformed into a modern art movement during the mid-20th century. It was initiated by Ibrahim el Salahi in 1955 in North Africa. Modern artists now use calligraphy as a graphic element in their artworks. This use of calligraphy also became known as the Huruffiya movement. Harf is an Arabic word that translates to the letter and Huruf is the plural form. The movement allowed Muslim artists to mix together, Muslim artistic expression with western art concepts. In other words, artists were able to display the cultural heritage and Islamic traditions using a contemporary composition. To date, calligraphy is a dominant art form that continues to present itself through various expressions.
