Islamic Calligraphy Painting hand painted with gold foil.
"Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. His light is like a niche in which there is a lamp, the lamp is in a crystal, the crystal is like a shining star, lit from ˹the oil of˺ a blessed olive tree, ˹located˺ neither to the east nor the west, whose oil would almost glow, even without being touched by fire. Light upon light! Allah guides whoever He wills to His light. And Allah sets forth parables for humanity. For Allah has ˹perfect˺ knowledge of all things."
The painting features intricate Arabic calligraphy done in gold foil against a black canvas background. The calligraphy is Mohammad Khan's signature style, featuring flowing, swirling letters and lines that come together to form beautiful patterns and words of Islamic scripture or poetry. As an award winning Saudi calligrapher, Mohammad Khan is renowned for his mastery of the art form and his ability to transform Arabic letters into works of art. The gold foil calligraphy in this piece pops dramatically against the deep black background, allowing the delicate lines and shapes of the letters to really stand out. The contrast between the gold and black, along with the level of fine detail and precision in the calligraphy, come together to create a visually striking work of Islamic calligraphic art that exemplifies Mohammad Khan's exceptional skill and artistic vision.
