Ash Shariqah, UAE, United Arab Emirates, 2013/10/22 - The book titled “ 99 Names of Allah -Paintings by Noor, features more than a hundred paintings on canvas by the Artist. The paintings are a result of more than 5 years of work in his studios in Sharjah & Dubai focused on the divine attributes.
The stunning paintings present a post modernistic interpretation of the calligraphy of the traditional Arabic representations. Art Noor refers to this work as spiritual, meditative and abstract in essence, since the creator cannot be fully understood or given a form of any kind, according to the Islamic faith, where it is forbidden to make any figurative representations of Allah and his messenger.
Since its publication some of the biggest names in the U.A.E have been interested in sponsoring it for distribution. Who will finally sponsor the book for wider publication and release is a mystery and yet to be disclosed.
Artist Art Noor has announced the publication of the book on social media a few months ago and has been sending it as gifts to inner circles of friends.
When asked about the venue of his next exhibition, Art Noor said “Since, I want to reach the maximum people both with the book and the art which I do, I would prefer the venue to be a large frequently visited destination, preferably in Abu Dhabi. It is the emerging art capital of the Middle East and is building the Guggenheim Museum which will be the art attraction for the whole world”
In his radio Interview with Andrew Hosie at Abu Dhabi Classic FM Chanel, Art Noor announced a launch event for the book, which will be held towards the end of the year. He wants this event to take place on the 2nd December 2013 to coincide with U.A.E National day on the 2nd of December 2013.
Art Noor (artnoor.com) is the multidisciplinary artist who is widely traveled and has his work featured all over the world. He left his flourishing career in advertising about a decade ago and dedicated himself to become a full time artist and chose to live in U.A.E after his return from the USA because he wanted a hiatus from commercial life and spend time walking the sand dunes and introspecting.
The book is being ordered from various parts of the world including the USA and Europe. It has been widely acclaimed for its art and the feeling it generates from artists, critics, and the art lovers in general. It will be available through the online stores in the month of December.
