Move over traditional Islamic wall art in which Arabic text would be stitched with golden thread on a black fabric, usually velvet or silk. Or ayats would be neatly sewn onto colourful carpets, or verses would be hand-written with black ink on a white sheet of paper.
As living and working spaces evolve with time, so must Islamic wall art. We, at Baradari: A House of Arts and Crafts, present Islamic wall art in a new medium – canvas. And we combine handwritten calligraphy with digital colouring technologies to present you the finest pieces of modern Islamic wall art to decorate your homes, offices and restaurants.
Each of our artworks is handwritten by a master veteran calligrapher, coloured and digitally enlarged, and then printed on high-quality canvas or fine art paper to give an enhanced artistic look. Our artworks are a seamless blend of handwritten and digital, traditional and modern, and are thus unique masterpieces that can add a dash of spiritual décor to your home or office.
We also have a wide range of verses, chapters and prayers to choose from. So, we have the Dua for Parents, which you can gift your mother or father. We have verses such as ‘Inna ma’as-saabireen’ (Allah is with the patient), ‘Inna ma’al usri yusra’ (Verily with difficulty comes relief) and ‘Inni Tawakaltu -al- Allah’ (Indeed, I have relied on Allah) – all of which are an immense source of solace. If pasted on your walls, they can serve as a constant reminder of Allah’s Mercy.
So, Islamic wall art is evolving not just in terms of new mediums and printing technologies, but also in terms of the range of text on offer. Clearly, Baradari: A House of Arts and Crafts, is an important player in bringing you the best of modern Islamic wall art.
