Aadil Abedi is an acclaimed London-based artist and designer. Contemporary Arabic and Indian influences, alongside rich and vibrant colours characterize his work. Inspired by Arabic calligraphy and religious history, he creates original artwork with a contemporary effect, giving an ancient tradition a modern twist.
The Arabic script is timeless. The reason it has stood the test of time is because it possesses geometric perfection. Aadil has been able to give this dynamic script a new interpretation, in the form of contemporary art. He merges his Indian heritage and ancestral Arabic roots to create new forms of art – using acrylics on canvas to make his paintings truly unique.
Aadil’s paintings adorn the interiors of well-known personalities, including Bollywood royalty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, London’s elite Jemima Goldsmith and Royal families in the Middle-East. His work has been exhibited in London, Dubai, Bahrain, Dallas and Sydney and has been showcased alongside great legends M.F.Husain, F.N.Souza and Ismail Gulgee.
Each piece is handmade and customised to a client’s specifications. Clients receive one-on-one consultation and a personalised service to cater to their art needs. Aadil takes inspiration from his clients’ interiors, creating distinctive and rare pieces that have a lasting impact.
