Compendium of Works of Art by Ismaili Artists

“Touched by the Essence” by Naznin-Virji Babul, Vancouver, Canada.

Simerg wishes to partner with Ismaili artists from around the world to feature a selection of their visual representations on this website. Artists are invited to submit two or three small to medium sized images of their works for a special compendium which will be published on this blog during summer of 2012, with regular updates thereafter. Artists are requested to include their short profiles, and provide links to their own websites or other on-line resources as well as galleries where their complete works are available for viewing.

“Nur i” by Rubina Rajan, Vancouver, Canada

Artists may be aware that Simerg has a special category for visual arts which features numerous Ismaili artists (Visual Arts: The Artists and their Works). However, this category is under-represented. We feel there is an incredible amount of talent within the Ismaili art community which needs to be recognized and appreciated; and a compendium, regularly updated, will be a definitive source for identifying and learning more about Ismaili visual artists. We are also confident that the compendium will help artists attain wider exposure, considering this website’s growing worldwide readership.

We look forward to hearing from all Ismaili artists around the world, professionals and non-professionals alike, for inclusion in this special compendium earmarked for summer 2012. Please submit your images with a brief profile to simerg@aol.com.

Thank you
