porta mosque

porta mosque . 2014

wishing all the krossbreed lovers out there a ramadan kareem. hope the month brings blessings to all, and may all your prayers be answered.
i was invited by capsule arts to create an illustration for a limited edition print which will go on sale during the holy month. proceeds from the sales will go to the big heart campaign, a uae based charity for syrian refugee children.
the illustration you see here is titled 'porta mosque', and is inspired by the temporary cabin mosques found around the uae; from construction sites to random desolate areas in the city. even though these mosques are so simple in their construction, they still have so much character & individuality to them. these mosques speak stories about the communities that congregate within their space, and how religion is important & sacred no matter what social class you come from.
if you want to contribute to a good cause, or just own a really cool artwork, head here to purchase your very own print of porta mosque. this limited edition print is an edition of 25, priced at aed 550, 29.7 x 29.7 cm.
