I’m a huge fan of Instagram, mostly because I’m such a visual person. I like to get inspired by scrolling through the feeds of all the people whose photos I find so beautiful, whether they are traveling, eating or creating something special for the home. That’s how I came across Modern Wall Art, a family run company creating special, unique and beautiful Islamic inspired artwork as a family run operation. I met with the founders and family members to learn more and share with you because I think you’re going to absolutely love this.
About Modern Wall Art
Modern Wall Art is very different from other companies selling Islamic art in a few ways. For one, each piece is handcrafted and so no two pieces are exactly the same. This ensures quality, as they do not mass produce. They’re able to provide attention to every item and make it of the highest quality. Second, which I really love, is that all items are made in metal and stainless steal and not the typical wooden pieces everyone is used to seeing; all items are made in modern calligraphy which is not commonly seed today. They offer custom work, as every piece can be modified to fit your requirements. What’s more is that they can also duplicate any artwork and modify it to fulfill your personal needs. A really cool feature is that all their items are in 3D, giving the pieces a rich and heavy look but at 1 – 3 pounds per piece, they are not heavyweight so won’t take down your whole wall when hanging!
Modern Wall Art takes Islamic artwork to the next level by really focusing on what their customers want specifically for the spaces they are decorating. When I met with them, I was impressed by the personal contact they made with their customers to understand their space completely and fit the style and form which would make most sense in their space. I even hope to have them over when I’m done with my own home renovations, to help me choose a space and the right piece of artwork for that space.
I absolutely love the gold pieces, but stainless steel is hard to pass up when you’re upgrading your home to something ultra modern or urban chic.
They even made a remote operated LED Islamic piece for a customer who requested it, which is the first known of its kind to be made by any other artist in this field. You can see more of their process on their Instagram feed.
Background of Modern Wall Art
Modern Wall Art (MWA) was founded by Syed Abdul Rahman who resides in Lincolnwood, IL with his family. MWA is a family operated business and primarily run from home. Syed is in charge of managing Sales and Marketing while his parents, Syed Abdul Quyoum and Ayesha Yasmeen, oversee the manufacturing and packaging. Syed’s wife, Mehreen, also helps with publicity and manages social media for MWA. The company was founded in 2005 when Syed’s family purchased their first home and while renovating it, they realized it was almost impossible to find contemporary Islamic art of good quality in the Chicagoland area. Syed immediately started working on a stainless steel Islamic piece for his home and, over time, made a few pieces for family and friends. However, it wasn’t until November 2013 that the company started producing in greater quantities and serving a larger audience. To help Syed’s retired parents with day to day expenses and stay occupied during retirement, Modern Wall Art turned from a hobby into a full-fledged business.
