Art Exhibition - Islamic Geometric Design
Bradford Museums in the UK recently commissioned Eric Broug to create an artwork for their collection. It has now gone on display as part of their Eye of the Beholder exhibition series, together with the work of three other artists. For their collection, he created a giant jali screen. Also on display is a neon star , a selection of my watercolour compositions and a large geometric panel inspired by a minbar in the Great Mosque of Isfahan.
There will be several events at the museum in the coming months.
