About the Exhibition

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.
