Calligraphic Art

His artistic calligraphic works have won the hearts of art lovers all over the Middle East as well as in other parts of the world. He has been experimenting with Arabic calligraphy for decades and has evolved a new style of his own that is quite different from the traditional one. Apart from making colorful designs and shapes in calligraphy, he has painted many samples of Quranic calligraphies, and presented them to large audiences in Islamic countries.

Last year, Siddiqui held a Quranic Calligraphic Art exhibition at Saudi Aramco in Dhahran where a large number of visitors appreciated his works of art. Interestingly, Siddiqui has planned to focus on this special genre of art in the future. —
