This summer I was commissioned to paint a gigantic painting in maroons and golds depicting the Turkish inspired whirling dirveshes (mystic dancers). 

For this project I re-used an old canvas of mine on which I had painted Mughal inspired architecture in purples.


As it was done in 2006 I felt it could be improved upon and that’s exactly what I did. Covering the canvas in white and ochre I began and finished in two weeks time.

After 10 years this canvas got an amazing uplift. Notice the new work pays homage to the previous painting by depicting the same Mughal architecture (badshahi mosque) as well as the crescent moon on the top right.


Here is is framed and hung in the matching living room.
