Artist's description:

Calligraphy word, "Al-Alim" (Name #20) - "Al-Alim": Al-'Alim, the Omniscient, it's meaning is evident. It's perfection lies in comprehending everything by knowledge, manifest and hidden, small and large, first and last, inception and outcome, and with respect to the multitude of objects known, this will be infinite. Reference in Quran: Such is He who knows all that is beyond the reachof a created being's perception, as well as all that can be witnessed by a creature's senses or mind; the Almighty, the Dispenser of Grace, who makes most excellent everything that He creates.As-Sajdah 32:6-7, 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.
