Srinagar: Nadiya Mushtaq Mir hailing from kralpora area of district budgam , educated from Kashmir University where she pursued masters in economics as well as a degree in fashion designing,
Speaking to Kashmir today about her art (calligraphy)and designing she said since childhood i was very keen and interested in this art and make sure it will become innovative , later when i was in high school, i started to create my own designs , This art is an god gift to me as i didn’t joined any classes or a teacher to learn calligraphy
“I would say my art is an extension to me ” I just don’t create this art but i also do speak through it ,This is actually how my work of calligraphy and designing turned into my passion,
During the unrest of 2016 she said almost it was 100 days of lockdown here , i did tried to sum these things back and started doing Islamic calligraphy which turned my work more successful as i found my work was being watched in (india) as well as outside country also , After that i got online orders from united Arab Emirates (UAE) and other parts of world as they appreciated my work and reacted my work to 5 star ratings ,
Besides the comments and reactions that i got from this work , i found that this is “what i was searching for” and i switched to work on Islamic calligraphy and stay tuned with it, and quitted designing..
When asked about this kind of art is seen less in Kashmir, she said confidence without reason and humility is not a confidence at all , sometimes who works hard enough is exuding true modest assurance , of course that’s inspiring..
I would say better ambrace , love and be proud and confident about your imprefections..
