My modest collection of modern digital art

I have always loved art, and I've noticed that my style of art that I hung in personal spaces has changed with time.
Before I really admired (and still do) oil painting and I even had a go with making my own pieces. I have my own mini oil paintwork collection. But now, with the rise of the digital age, the digital artwork has become more accessible.  Modern Islamic wall art is a whole other game changer.
 

We have a plethora of Muslim artists who make and sell the most beautiful, awe-inspiring wall art, which has inspired me to start my own mini-collection. Not all are framed (some are still in the process of finding one), but what I love about digital art is that it looks good even without frames! Which is why I've started hanging some of these on my boards.

As the name of this post suggests,, my collection is quite small and modest. And most of this collection was given to me as a gift, which makes them more special and meaningful. So here is my little digital art collection, from left to right.

The first one I framed with a thin gold frame was designed by Good Morning Muslimah. I  love the prints and colours of this artwork. It is very bold, but the shades have a soft and subtle element to them which I like. It has a verse from the Quran Surah Al Baqarah verse 153 "Oh, you who have believed seek help from patience and prayer. Indeed Allah is with the patient"
It is a lovely verse and a powerful reminder for us all. Truly a blessing in one portrait.

The second artwork I received is already framed with a glass frame. This is the most feminine of the collection and has a lovely rose print. It also has a verse from the Quran from the same Surah Al Baqarah verse 195 "Do what is beautiful. Allah loves those who do what is beautiful" This artwork has a truly special place in my heart as it was a gift for my help on the day of FFIR's Tea Party for Syria on the 6th August. It is a lovely reminder for myself that sometimes working hard and doing something right and beautifully is for Allah.

Artwork three was originally not actually mine, I sort of stole it. Okay, I didn't steal it, but fell in love and kept it. This artwork is a postcard with a thank you note and a message sent to my younger sister, one of the organisers of Tea Party for Syria by Poppetry. The postcard is actually one of the Poppetry's artworks which you can buy. I've kept it on my board as it is small. It reads Bismillah, which means 'In/with the name of Allah' in Arabic. These are the words said before every Surah (that is, chapter) of the Quran, but it is such a meaningful phrase that we Muslims say this at the beginning of doing everything, to bring blessing to it and seek permission from Allah to do it. This artwork has the same kind of theme as the rest that I own;  bold but with soft pastel shades to balance.

My final artwork is also by Poppetry, but this one is the biggest. You can buy it from her store, but I was lucky enough to print it out as a freebie during a Ramadan giveaway with some other artwork. This one has got to be an all-time favourite. It has a quote by Yasmin Mogahed; "The more you let go, the higher you rise" with a rather symbolic air-balloon in the background.

  3. My older sister made me a board to hang on my wall for my 21st birthday and pinned old pictures, quotes and memories on it. I haven't added anything to it since she made it for me and these look like they would look amazing on my board!
