Profile and Statement: Mehboob Dewji was born in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, where he with his brother, Amin, ran a commercial art studio Dewart. Today, Mehboob works for a Vancouver based motion pictures firm.

He writes:

“Creating digital Islamic patterns is a hobby. My designs are inspired by the Alhambra. I find it easier to design on a computer to create geometric patterns. The patterns were created using Photoshop.

I started with just one straight line, gave a texture and color and used filters to create geometric patterns. Again using different colors and texture, I added layers of different geometric shapes to create a “tile” that I used to make a seamless pattern. These patterns were then used to create backgrounds and spheres using several different shapes and colors.

My other hobby being photography, I enjoy creating photo composites using both my designs and photographs.”
