How I became a painter??

Twenty years ago, if someone had said, you would be painting Allah’s divine names in future, I would find it hard to believe for three reasons.
First of which being the lack of training and discipline to work on a canvas for weeks and months
Second, I was living in New Delhi and running an advertising agency which routinely employed the creative artists, but only for creating the commercial advertising for television and print media. My only connection with painting was my friendship with some very well known painters, and occasional visits to much sought after events, whenever possible.
Third, the chore of mixing the paints and cleaning the brushes seemed out of sync with my habits and experience.

“Noor’ was the title given by Directorate of Art, Sharjah to my first solo exhibition organised by them in 2004.
It consisted of 63 paintings of the 99 names of Allah. That was the beginning of a journey which continues till today.
Being a full time painter for fifteen years has taught me a lot. And I am still learning. The abstract and infinite nature of the spiritual subject which I started off on, has become an obsession and the reason why I paint at all.
It keeps opening new doors and I feel, I haven’t created more than a thousand paintings, but they have made me”
“The Ramadan inspired LED show that Noor designed and produced for Burj Khalifa depicting the divine names, was chosen to be played on the façade of the world’s tallest tower many times in the evening.

A combination of artistic interpretation coupled with a spiritual concept, this show is being received with overwhelming response by both live and online audience.

Testimony to this is the fact that the video of the show has crossed two million views and still counting.”

The Asma Exhibition at Dubai Mall Opened in sync with the LED Show at the Burj Khalifa, 1st of Ramadan 2018.

Consisting of a hundred canvases, it set new benchmarks of elegance in exhibiting art at public places.

Spread over two floors over thousands of square feet of space, at the newly opened Fashion Avenue, it transformed Dubai Mall into a hottest art destination during the whole month.

ASMA Collection

In 2006, Noor set up a studio for doing his art, at distance of twenty kilometers from the city. It didn’t seem the best location to begin with. But it turned out to be blessing in disguise. How ??
