#Repost from @michaeljeha by @InstaSave.DStudio ・・・ 'I painted, I drew, I played around with Japanese and Arabic calligraphy on wood, on paper. I didn't have to make a choice; I learnt everything between Spain and Japan. My reading no doubt guided me. I went round in circles looking at the blank work. I got into a frenzy, a passion for the sign, I repeated the name of God endlessly, the name of Allah submerged my work. My need to transcend had found an echo, the name of God on earthen shapes. This stage enabled me to be more accurate, more concentrated. But it's true, I am at the same time a painter, a ceramist and a sculptor.' – Khaled Ben Slimane in conversation with Marianne Catzaras. Khaled Ben Slimane, β€˜Howa’ 2014-2015 With a delightful blend of Eastern and Western influences, Khaled Ben Slimane’s work centres on graphism, playing with letters, words, calligraphy and Qur’anic verses in an easily recognizable style, beautifully illustrated in the most rhythmic fashion in β€˜Howa’. Translated as God Almighty, the word 'Howa' appears in the large central circle and is then applied hundreds of times over in successive repetition, offering a sense of tranquility and with it Ben Slimane is emphasizing the notion that God watches over us all. #khaledbenslimane #tunisian #tunisianartist #modernart #contemporary #contemporaryart #christiesdubai #christies #artwatchers #artoftheday #picoftheday #artforeveryone #dubaiart #middleasternart #acrylic #canvas #artinsights #blue #northafrican #calligraphy #circles #script #repostedition πŸ˜‰ ✌

@nesangel : here is my first attempt at trying the @palestineonaplate #cookbook #recipes. I chose the "Maftoul" because it is the same idea as the #Tunisian #Mhamsa (shout out to #lesmoulinsmahjoub for their mhamsa and #oliveoil). We shall see how it turns out 😍 #Palestinian #Food #Mediteranean #Heritage #Foodgasm #Foodporn #Yummy #tasteofhome #tetaandjeddowouldbesoproud #middleeasternfood #delicious #homecooking #homemade #happysunday #memphisoise #instafood #mediterraneanfood
