MOHAMMED ALI- Graffiti Artist
Who would have thought that Islamic Art and Graffiti Art would share such fascinating parallels? Graffiti artists would strive to remain anonymous and would not seek faim or attention in the conventional sense, and similarly calligraphers from the islamic art world would also remain anonymous, their art wasn’t glorifying themselves, but rather the word itself. It was about the power of words.
Mohammed Ali was one of those who was inspired and drawn to this facinating expression of urban art. The early eighties saw the birth of graffiti in the UK, and it was the book “Subway Art” which enlightened young people up and down the country. Unlike today, with the internet being the main tool in taking concepts to an international audience, it was via this book, that the kids discovered this amazing artistic movement that was born in the USA.
Mohammed aims to merge together these two distinct styles, and in turn has created an exciting form that attempts to ‘bring the best of boths worlds’ together.

BLACK STAR DOWN
A band logo i came up with.
You can tell me not to speak
but i cant keep this silence
you can stage your revolution
but i wont stand beside you
How many chances do you have to waste,
Before you see that you’ve got what it takes,
It wont happen while your sitting around,
You gotta be astute start working it out.
How many people are bending the truth,
Lying and deceiving its getting to you,
Now is the time to do something profound,
Fabricate a plot that will make you renowned.
