Asghar Mughal – the man behind the Islamic art.

The calligraphy while originally making use of basic Arabic script is known to depict anthropomorphic figures that symbolically represent creatures, the most notable one being that of a lion, a title given to the fourth Caliph of Islam Ali.

Once such calligrapher, whose work precedes his name is Asghar Mughal. Famous for being the only calligrapher to work without brushes, Mughal has introduced new concepts and ideas into the age old form of art and therefore his work is a beautiful fusion of history and modernity. Using colors in beautiful multidimensional aspects, he has managed to develop what he calls ‘a galaxy of colors on canvas’.

  1. Good post. I be taught something more difficult on totally different blogs everyday. It is going to always be stimulating to read content material from different writers and observe slightly something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content material on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a hyperlink on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.

  2. aren’t you a shia? no offence meant (really), but I thought I’d tell you that Imam Ali (AS) was the first caliph, not fourth. Or well, technically he was fourth but we dont consider the first three since we believe they were usurpers.

    • Yes, I am. and he wasn’t the first Caliph, he was the first Imam. We believe in Imammat. And we hold immense respect for the first three Caliphs because they were the Prophet’s (pbuh) companions.
