Behnood Javaherpour, a world-renowned fashion designer and art curator, pours his heart out on Islamic Art.
The world today knows that Islamic art is about the visual arts that are produced in the Islamic world. It is about religious and secular art forms and is also difficult to characterize as it includes genres, lands and periods, including Islamic calligraphy, Islamic architecture, Islamic pottery, Islamic miniature, Islamic glass, and even textile arts like embroidery and carpets. Though Islamic art is a relatively recent term that is used for describing artistic traditions, it has flourished from the time Islam was introduced and had been thriving as it has been created with a variety of cultures present within the Muslim world, explains a man who has dived deep into the world of art and now is a world-renowned art genius, art curator and fashion designer named Behnood Javaherpour.

Explaining about the three principle vehicles for artist expression in the Islamic world, Behnood Javaherpour says it is the arts of the books, which includes illustration, book-binding, calligraphy and illumination, second is architecture, and the third is the art of objects like ceramic, glass, textile, ivory, woodwork and metalwork.
