Islamic Human Rights Commission hosts exhibition of Contemporary Islamic Art by Siddiqa Juma

Islamic Human Rights is delighted to host the first UK exhibition of the up and coming Islamic artist – Siddiqa Juma. The exhibition will run from the 10th to the 25th of November 2011 We have a number of Siddiqa’s paintings displayed at our shop and have had a fantastic response. The original paintings as well as limited edition prints will be available at IHRC during the exhibition

Siddiqa’s paintings are contemporary interpretations, fusing various traditions and cultures, of the classical Islamic Calligraphies and architecture that have motivated, inspired and influenced her in her journey through life as a wife, mother and woman in our modern times.

Each of Siddiqa’s piece of art is a visual feast taking the viewer on a journey of meditation of the spirit. Her work presents creative expression of a beautiful faith.

Siddiqa has been invited to hold her exhibition in Karachi in February and in April she has been invited to hold her exhibition in Cairo as part of a pan African conference on empowering women.

‘Siddiqa Juma’s painting in the Multi-Faith Room at Great Ormond Street Hospital has a capacity to reflect the mystery of the spiritual and draws the viewer in to a relationship with the image. By using the name of Allah in one of the specific colours, the integrity and depth of the faith are reflected in a way that interacts rather than imposes’. – Reverend James Linthicum, Great Ormond Street Hospital

‘Siddiqa Juma’s paintings are a bold and vibrant collection of artwork that speak from the heart.’ – Humera Khan, author, activist and educator.

‘Siddiqa’s art fills me with joy and a deep connection to spirit’ – Hajji Samir Malik, artist.

‘Siddiqas’ art showers you with serene Swirls of spiritual ambience, transcending one effortlessly and strengthening the desire to reach that ultimate precious destination’. – Shemiza Rashid ,
Radio presenter, teacher, CEO/Interfaith art consultant ‘The creative Muslim network’
