Composing and creating art that are original comes purely from some sort of creativity and mindset to try something never done before. Though the saying "nothing is new underneath the sun" stands true for many cases, but in the present day with the advance in technology there is almost always something new to look forward to especially in graphic arts and visual arts. The following hijab fashion artwork was composed by a visual artist and graphic designer named Kenal Louis.
The hijab fashion art piece was inspired by a fashion design created creatively from the brand DEEN iT and was created by designer Aaminah Hietala. The artwork's direction along with combination of the design, color, and symbolism was used with a freely expressed poem Dina Marie Yasmine Akoudad a friend of the artist of the composed artwork wrote. The poem was focused and emphasized freedom. Kenal attempts to express the symbolized poem by creating the broken hijab fashion head piece into pieces that would form the doves silhouettes that are viewed in the artwork.
According the blog post originally written about the artwork by Kenal the graphic designer and visual artist. Dina have an amazing ability as well to also create creative hijab fashion clothing head pieces as well as Aaminah Hietala.
The Kenal blog post also states that "Fashion design is something very universal today in age and hijabs have been part of the Islam culture for women for a while. A mark and covering that hide much of the Aramaic and Arabic women’s features from the public eye in a way keeping them pure and for their beloved or for innocence. Though in part of Arabic history the women during the first century didn’t use to wear a Hijab for covering. According to Tebyan (an online Islamic and Muslim news source) the men and women used to see and talked to each other and used to walk side by side. In Mosques they would pray together. Arabic women use to wear colorful yet loose clothes mostly half covered. They use to put a shinning belt around the waist. The hair used to be opened and not covered."
Every culture have their customs and Kenal expresses this of the Islamic culture through his artwork, but also in contrast to the faith symbolized by the doves which emphasize breaking away from the religion.
