Artist's description:

Calligraphy word, "Al-Ghaffar" (Name #15) - "Al-Ghaffar": Al-Ghaffar, He who is full of forgiveness, is the one who makes manifest what is beautiful and conceals what is ugly. Sins are among the ugly things which He conceals, by letting a cover fall over them in this world, and refraining from requiting them in the next. So forgiving is concealing. Reference in Quran: And He alone is truly forgiving, all embracing in His love, in sublime almightiness enthroned, a sovereign doer of whatever He wills.Al-Buruj 85:14-16, I took little inspiration from the movement and harmony of Arabic Scripts for writing like khat e diwani, Khat e diwani jeli and Riqa diwani. This cursive style developed during the reign of the early Ottoman Turks (16th century ). It was invented by Housam Roumi. It was labeled the Diwani script because it was used in the Ottoman diwan. If we see overall painting then writing style is contemporary. Writing is composed with Islamic motives which are used in Islamic architecture.They are based on curving and branching vegetal forms. But some of them have foliage and linear geometric patterns in a single design, and some purely abstract . The floral designs have evolved into beautiful and highly complex patterns. I tried to use arabesque color palette in motifs but in few options color palette is inspired from contemporary colors. In mostly paintings square and round motives are used as a "nukta". Some time text is readable sometime not.
