Salma Arastu in Tikkun Daily

“Abstract people dance across her giant canvasses, which hover and throb with rich colors and an aching sense of peace,” wrote Alana Price of Indian-born artist Salma Arastu in the current Tikkun (on newsstands now). A Hindu by upbringing and a Muslim by marriage, Arastu has been deeply influenced by the flowing lines of Arabic calligraphy, and by the understanding that God is one and we are all one. Check out Alana’s blog post about how Lord Krishna began to dance his way back into Arastu’s paintings through her “Blue God” series, which is featured below, along with a behind-the-scenes photo essay of her art studio. Visit Arastu’s website to learn more about her work and order her beautiful book.
