Aaliyah Ebrahim Aaliyah Ebrahim (born in 1993 in Cape Town, South Africa) is an emerging multifaceted artist who is journeying the paradigm of Art, Aesthetics, Abstract and Arabic. She uses these paradigms to explore the realm of intense colour, texture, depth, layers and meaning. She believes that creativity is a fruitful gift with the purpose to inspire, encourage and motivate others. Her artwork is a visual story and extension of herself as she connects her creative process to the metaphor of the journey of life: Each blank canvas is a process of building, learning, failing, trying again, and building more layers of character and depth to form the truest version of yourself. Her message is simple: Life is not meant to be easy, but always strive to be kind and add value to the spaces and lives of those that surround you.
