Islamic Art

Islamic art constitutes artwork specifically from the period of the 7th Century onwards, which has been produced by the population of countries where Islam is the major religion. Although Islamic art is not exclusively Muslim the art form draws on many influences traditionally associated with religious Islamic art.

Islamic art is not exclusively one discipline and uses materials such as paint, pottery and ceramics while taking a large influence from skills such as calligraphy, music and architecture. This rich variety of influences makes Islamic art one of the most versatile movements in history. The many different influences combine to form creations with fantasy and wisdom which far precedes other artistic genres. Islamic art can be seen as an influence far beyond the constricts of its religious name.

There are repeating elements in Islamic art, such as the use of geometrical floral or vegetal designs in a repetition known as the arabesque. The arabesque in Islamic art is often used to symbolize the transcendent, indivisible and infinite nature of Allah.

Aziza Essa combines many elements of Islamic art and western art to create a fusion of styles and sub-genres. The result is floorless creations which border on Islamic art and emotional journeys.
