Islamic art canvas is indeed a new trend in the area of Islamic calligraphy art for home décor. It involves the use of colours and canvas. It can be calligraphy painted directly on canvas. Or it could be a digital version of handwritten calligraphy that is printed on canvas. Islamic calligraphy on canvas comes under the category of modern Islamic wall art as it involves the application of new mediums like canvas, use of digital technology for editing and colouring, and the employment of large modern printing machines to reproduce artworks at a fast pace and on a large scale. Quite obviously, this is very different from traditional Islamic wall art, wherein a passage or a verse from the Glorious Quran is stitched with a golden thread on black fabric, mostly silk or velvet – the choice of colours coming from the drape that covers the Ka’aba at the Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah. Another kind of traditional or classical Islamic wall art is vivid wall rugs that are generally crafted in Turkey, Central and South Asia. These carpets are densely adorned with floral patterns and intricate, thick borders even as Arabic calligraphy is neatly stitched onto the centre of the piece. With time, there has been a slew of innovations in Islamic wall artwith two trends especially standing out for popularity. The first is wall decals. These big economically-priced stickers composed of vinyl can be directly pasted on the wall, with no requirement of framing or drilling a hole into the wall. Wall decals, with no backgrounds, turnthe attention of the onlooker to the calligraphy. The other important trend that has caught on is Islamic calligraphy on canvas, as mentioned in the beginning of the article. Different from the calligraphy-only focus of wall decals, Islamic canvas art makes use of colours so as to highlight the calligraphy and the text. Colours are an important part of wall decoration. A dash of colour brightens up our homes. To say ‘add colour to your life’ means to live life with joy and positivity. Nowadays, people paint the walls of their homes in a colour other than white. Mostly, one wall in a room is painted in a very bright or a very dark colour in order to add contrast to the other three walls painted in white. Islamic art canvas blends colours and artistic canvas with Arabic calligraphy, thus making a piece of large Islamic canvas art looking very fine and profound and beautiful. Islamic calligraphy on canvasart works come in a large range of shades –red, blue, green, purple, beige, yellow, white, pink, brown, et al. Generally, the colour of the background and the colour of the text contrast one another in order to highlight the calligraphy. Because, after all, when it comes to Islamic calligraphy art, the message is of utmost importance.
