Whirling Dervishes. Shafique Farooqi Muhammad Shafique Farooqi
Sufism is the core theme of his art. He believes that Sufism is a step by step process that requires time and dedication. His zeal for spirituality is presented in his calligraphy and whirling dervishes, but its riot mere words painted on a canvas. His calligraphy technique is unique; he paints with his fingertips and palm of his hand. I do not use a paint brush. I use palm of my hand to paint the canvas, my fingertips, thumb and knife to sharpen the edges. I feel that each letter has a character of its own, which the artist must portray with beauty. The letters must speak through the medium to present its meaning;'he says.
