About Aziza
Influenced by tradition and channeling the contemporary, Aziza Iqbal is an Indian visual artist, surface design and pattern specialist currently based in Doha, Qatar. 

Having taken several courses in sacred geometry with the UK-based Art of Islamic Pattern tutors, and the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, the foundation of her work is rooted in the harmony and symbolism of Islamic art, crafts and architecture – the perfect blend of science, aesthetics and spirituality. 

She has travelled extensively to Andalucía, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco, and India, to study this Islamic pattern heritage, with a special focus on Mughal Architecture of the Subcontinent – a distinctive blend of the Persian artistic influence and indigenous Indian techniques and motifs. 

Working with both traditional and digital media, she creates intricate patterns of varying styles. From geometric compositions, drawn and painted using classical tools and techniques, to vibrant, contemporary renditions of textile weaving patterns.

Some of her recent clients are Mirzam Chocolate MakersQatar Museums, Alef Magazine, Brownbook Magazine, and she has also contributed to the Uncommon Dubai guide book edition. She currently conducts practical geometry workshops for beginners, and is a community class instructor at VCU Qatar, teaching introductory courses on the traditional construction techniques used in Islamic geometric patterns.

Aziza is a SELECT artist at Kulture Shop; India's premier artist collective bringing original and exclusive artwork on premium lifestyle products. Some of her work is available for purchase at Kulture Shop online.
