Ramadan Kareem 2014
© Khalid Mezaina - Porta Mosque, 2014
Ramadan Kareem to everyone celebrating this holy month.
The above illustration is by my brother Khalid Mezaina for Capsule Arts. It is available in a limited edition of 25 prints which can be purchased this month for AED 550 and 25% of the proceeds from the sales of each print will be donated to The Big Heart Campaign (a UAE-based charity for Syrian refugee children).
Porta Mosque is inspired the temporary cabin mosques found around the UAE; from construction sites to random desolate areas in the city.
Even though these mosques are so simple in their construction, they still have so much character and individuality to them.
These mosques speak stories about the communities that congregate within their space, and how religion is important and sacred no matter what social class you come from.
You can purchase the print form here.
