Ruby Jaffrey is a
talented, contemporary calligraphy artist who has exhibited her
artwork worldwide, including in London, LA, New York, and Karachi.
Like many of us who rely on art for expression and play, Ruby
describes hers as celebrations of color, spirituality, faith, and
specializes in Arabic script and modern Islamic art. Visual art,
calligraphy, and architecture are a massive part of Islamic
culture, as seen in the vibrant and striking building designs of
mosques and historical sites. However, there is a particular focus
within the religion on the beauty of calligraphy and poetry– in
Arabic, Urdu, and Farsi. Throughout our conversation, I was struck
by how Ruby talked about art. She regarded it as
a process with so much power and spirit.
