Muhammad Zaman is an Urban Artist specialized in calligraphy. Over the years he developed a personal style that incorporates three different languages that make up his identity.
Since childhood, he was always fascinated by languages, lettering and calligraphy of different parts of the world. His aim is to inspire people to share the same place and learn from each other in harmony and mutual understanding.
Although his works contain words in three different languages, there is always at least one recognizable word. This makes the audience curious to ask and decode the message, and this led them to a deep connection with his art.
Even if he uses ancient techniques and universal messages of peace, he keeps going trying new shapes and colors to present his art to the world with a modern look. His paintings are mostly acrylic on canvas or wood, but he’s always experimenting with materials and textures.
He was also part of commongroundsrtists.com which is an interfaith organization that promotes peace and allows diverse groups of people from all spectrums to come together for the arts.
He is part of Buffalo Art Studio, and he provided public speeches in universities, schools, art galleries and museums about art and the connection with the community. One of the public murals he did was in People’s Park in Buffalo, with the help of the kids of Salvation Army.
He has collectors all over the world and has been finalist at Luxembourg Art Prize in 2017 and winner of “Artist of the year 2019” for Arts Services Initiative of WNY, Inc.
