Nirvana Fayez Barakat

Volume 1



Introduction to Nirvana A question Fayez Barakat poses with his series, Nirvana, is: how can art be used as a vehicle to reach a state of nirvana? Fayez Barakat believes that Nirvana is a state of mind that is different for each one of us. Whatever an individual’s speciality, whether it is science, literature, music, or art, Fayez believes that it is possible to reach a level of perfection in one’s practice that will transcend the individual to a state of nirvana. For a musician, excelling at playing notes on his/her instrument can achieve a state of nirvana, for instance. A poet reaches this level of consciousness when his/her words flow seamlessly on the page. For an artist, nirvana is experienced by accomplishing a work of art that touches all of the senses through the creative process. Fayez believes this state of nirvana to be one of the healthiest mental states in life. Utilising vivid colours and eccentric brushstrokes, the artist’s aim with this series is to transport the viewer to a state of individual and desired nirvana by engaging them in a truly captivating and multi-sensory experience.
