Artist's description:

Calligraphy word " Al-Khaliq"(Name #12), The Creator, He who creates everything from nothing and creates all things with the knowledge of what will happen to them. -Ghazali — The word Khaliq comes from the root letters kha-laam-qaf and it has the following classical Arabic connotations: – to measure accurately, – to determine the proper measure or proportion for something, – to proportion one thing according to another, – to create something based on a pattern or model which one has devised and – to bring a thing into existence from non-existence. From these meanings we can conclude that Khaliq is the One who determines and creates according to the proper measure and proportion of each thing. He is the One who plans and determines how, when and where to create. He is the One whose works are perfectly suited, appropriate, fitting and proper. He is the One who creates something from nothing. He brings things into existence from a state of non-existence. He has the power to change things back and forth between the states of existing and non-existing. Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala has created whatever the eyes can see, perfecting them by His bounties and goodness, bringing them into existence according to His will, desire and wisdom. He is the Creator, Who creates everything from nothing and creates all things with the knowledge of what will happen to them. I took little inspiration for writing from the movement and harmony of Arabic Scripts 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".
