Aya Mourad is a Lebanese artist based in Sydney, Australia, whose work focuses on Islamic pattern. Drawing inspiration from her travels throughout West Asia and parts of Europe, she works primarily with watercolours but enjoys experimenting with other mediums.
Aya has been actively involved in creative pursuits since her childhood, and later developed a keen interest in Islamic art due to its unique combination of characteristics: spiritual evocation, symbolic value, decorative beauty, seamless harmony, symmetry, infinite repetitiveness and intricacy and paradoxical simplicity.
She aims to convey these attributes through her work and hopes to evoke feelings of joy and wonderment for its viewers. It is an honour to host her on this site.
