When I was working on“Cosmicity”, I experienced movements in its verses that utterly moved me so, captivated, I wanted to explore them through an art form that was more spacious and spontaneous than my highly detailed and elaborated paintings.

I accomplished this endeavor through graphic design, I envisioned a combination of abstract calligraphy and poetry fused with the joyous vestimentary aspect of African cultures which seemed like one aesthetic subtle dance.

This fusion turned into a free-flowing experience that exposed me to the spiritual principle of Unity/Tahwid in all.

I truly enjoyed developing this poetic art form so it is an immense pleasure for me to finally share it with my audience. Every poem captured on these prints are part of the Cosmicity book. The abstract calligraphy prints can be purchased here.
