Every religion has a distinct heritage in the way that it influences art. Art reflects culture and religious beliefs through a set of defined elements and different objects or drawings and paintings. On the other hand, religion also has its own boundaries and well described limits to which it allows the practice of art and creativity.
Art in Islam is mostly associated with calligraphy which is used to scribe and adorn the Arabic text of the Holy Quran or decorate the walls of Mosques and the great architectural advances of the Muslim artists of old. This association however, is very limited as it does not completely define the Islamic media and expression of art.
While making photos or sculptures of living things is restricted in Islam, with the passing time Islamic art has transformed to great lengths during the last century. Today, modern day Islamic art or Arabic calligraphic art experiments with different mediums and materials while also encompassing its beliefs and restrictions. Below, we cover a few different kinds of modern day Islamic wall art pieces that we think might be a great inspiration for decorating your home.
