Do you want to know what are the top 3 websites about Islamic geometry that I recommend? Well, here you go.
It was around July or August 2016 when I came across a geometric pattern. It was a 12 fold rosette, and I remember it was the most beautiful thing I’d seen in months.
Back then, I was into mandalas although I wasn’t sure that was my passion. I loved drawing them, but I lacked imagination, so I was always copying someone else’s work – yeah I have to be sincere, I’m so ashamed now.
I started searching about that kind of art, what’s the name of it? Where can I learn more? Is anyone teaching it in my town? Same questions as you, right?
As I mentioned in my previous post “3 books about IGP you should read” there are plenty of free resources out there, and you can make your research of course but here are my top 3 favourite and RELIABLE websites about Islamic geometric patterns.
This is David Wade’s website, a real expert in Islamic geometry. I highly suggest you to dive into the “Drawings, Diagrams & Analyses” sections but take a look at the rest as well.
People sharing their knowledge for free are a real blessing.
This is Brian Wichmann and Tony Lee’s website, and I know it can be a little confusing at the beginning, but you will love it, I promise.
I suggest you start from the “Islamic patterns by area” section.
Every time I need some inspiration, this is where I go.
3. “Drawing Islamic Geometric Designs.” Facebook group
This is not a website, but I didn’t want to name this blog post “2 websites and a facebook group” haha.
Anyway, this is Alan Adams’ group, and he is the first to share his knowledge there together with the other members.
Take a look at the “file” section in the group…TUTORIALS ALERT y’all!
That’s it guys. Of course there are plenty of other websites about Islamic geometry and you can share your favourite down here in the comments.
