Islamic Arabic Motifs

Islamic Arabic motifs have inspired me from earlier age, since I was in high school. I still remember my Art class teacher when he was explaining about how the motifs can be complex or humble meaning. To know more about motifs we must know that they represent deep layers of meaning for a lot of people, whom are prohibited from drawing or designing any human or icons. Therefore, the need of an inner expression to the beauty of nature was translated into motifs.

The main components of motifs are Arabic Calligraphy, Geometric art, Natural Graphics, Light and Water. This is observed in many of the architectural buildings, fine art, and craft in Muslim countries and expanded community. The mixing and harmony in colors and patterns makes me feel the tranquility and peace of mind that inhabits the artist who make it.
