Taking Paper Art a Notch Higher
Asmahan A. Mosleh is one of the most talented mandala artists in the world and the UK-based artist is probably in the same category with Mr. Riu if not better.
According to Asmahan, creating every single mandala takes her anywhere from 8 to 54 hours to complete depending on the intricacy involved. In creating the pieces, Asmahan uses gold leaf to gild each outline before tracing the outlines either with a pen or pencil.
The pearls of paint that are used in creating the mandalas are so detailed and bring a mixture of texture and bright colors. Given the density of the design and the work involved, Asmahan works from inception to completion. She create every mandala piece in one sitting so that she can fully immerse herself in one creation without being distracted or jumping on another.
The final results are astonishing and our admiration is in order.
