Bay Area artist Salma Arastu says that her artwork, inspired by her Indian heritage and Islamic spirituality, expresses “the universality of humanity”
Both Bhagavad Gita & Quran Speak to the Unity of Humanity & Soul
“Messages in Bhagavad Gita and Quran are the same to me,” says Salma Arastu, an award-winning, internationally exhibited artist based in Berkeley. Her intention in her artwork, adds Arastu, is to express “the universality of humanity” that her Indian heritage and Islamic spirituality inspire. She explains she uses her artistic voice “to break down the barriers that divide to foster peace and understanding” through her paintings, sculpture, calligraphy, and poetry.
