Mohammed is a graffiti artist fusing street art with stunning Arabic calligraphy, replacing street walls with canvas. The results are vibrant and colourful paintings where Islamic tradition meets western urban art.

Graffiti inspired Mohammed to draw and he was commissioned by Birmingham City Council to spray paint murals that reflected the rich diversity of cultures in the city.

It was his rediscovery of Islam however that led to the fusion of graffiti with calligraphy; and the creative development of Mohammed's arts venture Aerosol Arabic. The Quran became Mohammed's primary inspiration as well as the desire to connect with young people.

The fusion of graffiti and calligraphy promotes a message of peace and harmony portraying a positive perspective of Islam.

Mohammed labels his work "Urban Spiritual Art". Mohammed attends all his exhibitions; longer-term aspirations include delivering arts workshops in community settings and with young people.

November sees Mohammed featured on the BBC Desi DNA programme. He has upcoming exhibitions in Birmingham and at Canary Wharf. Aerosol Arabic is also evolving and 2004 has seen Mohammed launch an urban clothesline in the UK with plans to take it International.
