Arabic Calligraphy – The Journey of the Self

Halima Bhatti

Little Gallery Emerging Artist Program

 

16 March 2024 – 20 April 2024
Little Gallery, Level 2

 

Arabic Calligraphy – The Journey of the Self is not merely an artistic endeavour but a spiritual pilgrimage; it is an intimate exploration of identity, spirituality, and the timeless connection between artist and inspiration.

Through the rhythmic dance of letters, Halima Bhatti unravels layers of self-discovery. The canvas becomes a mirror reflecting the inner landscapes shaped by the poet’s profound musings. The paint becomes a conduit for emotions, thoughts, and the whispers of the soul, echoing the profound wisdom encapsulated in the verses of Holy Quran and Allama Iqbal’s poetry.

As you immerse yourself in Arabic Calligraphy – The Journey of the Self, take a moment to traverse the corridors of time. Let the eloquence of the artistic finesse of Halima Bhatti’s creations guide you through a tapestry that transcends mere artistry – it becomes a transformative experience.

A workshop will be held after the opening Meet & Greet event on Saturday 16 March – details to be confirmed.
