‘Add colour to your life’, they say, implying that one should live with joy and positivity. Colours are known to not just give us visual delight, but also to uplift our moods. Colours are an essential part of wall décor, as people choose to colour the walls of their homes, instead of keeping them plain white. In fact, it is a modern home décor trend to paint one wall of a room in a colour other than white. So that you can have a “dash of colour” in your room. We, at Baradari: A House of Arts and Crafts, have tried to apply the effect of colours on Islamic calligraphy.
Traditionally, Islamic calligraphy has been one of black text on white background, or golden text on black background. Our Islamic wall art comes in various hues -- blue, maroon, green, brown, turquoise, and many more. Usually, we choose a single shade as the background to keep the focus on the calligraphy intact. After all, when it comes to Islamic calligraphy art, the message is of prime importance. Nevertheless, our striking colours, and the artistic canvas texture, draws attention to the Islamic wall art, including its message. If a work of art on your walls can attract your attention, surely you would read the message, understand it, and hopefully follow it too!
