I would like to start by saying sorry for the lack of posts over the past few weeks.
I know some of you may be wondering what happened but I know most of you don’t care. As I’m too sure who reads this section. Let’s face it…there are better things to read on this site than my section.
Anyways, the short version is that I had computer problems followed by net problem. Sooo….things were looking great – NOT.
Okay, I know you guys aren’t reading this for my life story so let me tell you about this week’s artist.
Actually this week’s artist was pointed out by a friend, whom we will name shockresistant7. On another note, the artist is more of a Sculptor.
So let me introduce the sculptor, Amin Gulgee.
Amin Gulgee is an innovator of tradition. His medium is metal, his inspiration the varied and rich spiritual history of his native Pakistan. He is one of the many sculptors to bring Islamic calligraphy into a three dimension sculpture.
Amin Gulgee has exhibited extensively in the USA, Europe and the Middle East. In the ten years that the artist has been exhibiting, his work has followed many different directions, from the purely abstract to work that is inspired from Hindu mythology, Buddhist civilization and Islamic calligraphy. Although diverse, these directions influence and nourish one another for they all attempt to depict the spirituality of man.
For those who are currently living in Malaysia, they can see his latest exhibition at Galeri Petronas in Kuala Lumpur. The exhibition will run till the 18th January 2009.
