Have you been thinking of buying Islamic calligraphy art canvas? Is ‘online Islamic canvas art for sale a frequent keyword you are entering these days as you think of adorning the walls of your home? Do you want to put up a work of art that is a visual expression of your faith?

Well, Islamic calligraphy on canvas is a good option for you.

Traditionally, Islamic wall art has been about stitching the Arabic text with a golden thread on a black silk or velvet cloth. The combination of golden and black comes from the hues of the fabric that drapes the Ka’aba at the Masjid Al Haram in Makkah. Classical Islamic wall art also consists of wall rugs crafted in Turkey or India or Iran. These ornate wall carpets are filled with dense floral motifs and patterns as well as intricate borders. In the middle is neatly stitched Islamic calligraphy.

Nowadays, people are innovating in Islamic art with the use of new mediums, materials and production techniques. Two trends are noticeable. One, Islamic wall decals,which are made of vinyl and can be directly stuck to the surface of the wall forgoing the need of framing. Decals come in many sizes and prices. Without the distraction of colours or backgrounds, the focus is only on the calligraphy as there are no backgrounds.

The other new noticeable innovation is vivid Islamic calligraphy on canvas – which we talked about in the beginning of the article. In Islamic canvas art, colours and the artistic texture of the canvas are a means to draw the attention of the onlooker to the work of art, and more significantly, the message.

Colours are an important part of wall décor as they are believed to enliven our rooms. The saying add colour to your life’ means a person should live his or her life with optimism and zeal. Nowadays, many people spruce up the walls of their homes in a colour other than white. Mostly, one wall of a room is painted in a hue that isn’t white, often a dark or bright shade to produce the effect of contrast. 

A sizeable proportion of Islamic art stores are now using colours and canvases. If you are looking for online Islamic canvas art for sale, you’d come across a range of artworks in different colours –green, blue, black, white, red, purple, pink, etc. Some works are in one shade, others in several. The text colour and the background colour contrast each other in order to put the focus on the text. After all, in the world of Islamic canvas art online, the message is the most important.
