Khatt and the Art of Ebru

Shoaib Siddiqui is currently a University of Minnesota student who has been practicing khatt for seven years and recently introduced to the art of Ebru.

Khatt, which derives from the word “design”, is known as Arabic calligraphy. Khatt became a popular art form in Islamic empires because Muslims were heavily discouraged by their religious beliefs to draw forms of humans or animals.

Ebru comes from the Persian word “ab” which means water. This name was given to the art because it is made by marbling paint on top of water, then transferring it onto paper.
