“I am an Urban Artist specialized in Arabic calligraphy.
Over the years I have developed a personal style that incorporates three different languages
that make up my identity: English since I live in the USA, the Bengali, the language of my
fatherland, and Arabic which is the language of the religion I belong to.
Since childhood, I was always fascinated by languages, lettering, and calligraphy of different
parts of the world. Now, as a Muslim in the USA, I see a lot of negativity towards our tradition
but I always look for ways to give some positive message to people through my art.
My aim is to inspire people to share the same place and learn from each other in harmony and
I am also part of commongroundsrtists.com which is an interfaith organization that promotes
peace and allows diverse groups of people from all spectrums to come together for the arts.
Although my works contain words in three different languages, there is always at least one
recognizable word. This makes the audience curious to ask and decode the message, and this
led them to a deep connection with my art.
Even if I use ancient techniques and universal messages of peace, I keep going trying new
shapes and colors to present my art to the world with a modern look. My paintings are mostly
acrylic on canvas or wood, but I’m always experimenting with materials and textures.”
