Sabia the Arabian Mystic

Sabia the Arabian Mystic © 2013 Aida Toure

Peace~ I worked on this 40″x30″ oil & acrylic painting for about two years and a half, I immensely enjoyed the process. “Sabia the Arabian Mystic” is part of the series “Luminous Dark Matter” which I consider as a lifetime project.

What I enjoy the most about creativity is that for the subject of it, everything seems to stop: the notions of time, space and even physicality vanish… All that matters is being empty, listening and executing what comes through…

“Sabia the Arabian Mystic” celebrates the exalted ancestry of the Black Arabs who have been discriminated against and oppressed on their own land for centuries so my intention in working on this painting was to honor the native Arabs whose grandiose past has been concealed by conventional history. You may read more about and see the whole piece here. May the low paradigm of racism cease so that we can truly evolve to embrace our primeval unity~
