Illuminate | Mobeen Akhtar
Artwork by Mobeen Akhtar
‘Illuminate’ was one of the first Illumination paintings I completed. The spiralling floral patterns are most commonly known as islimi or tezhip. ‘Illuminate’ was inspired by my trip to Istanbul, where I witnessed endless spiralling designs of similar nature. A lot of the beautiful Quran Folios were decorated in extravagantly detailed patterns and I wanted to take a piece of that away with me.
The way I did that was to recreate it in something that would take me through the entire process of design to colour.
