Lines and Layers
The dial project was unique and its uniqueness led me to think of something unusually different in dial art which was by adding layers to the dial. The artwork consists of three layers, the Alhambra Palace in Spain, the mountain range, and the sky which are situated accordingly.
The project took two days and the main challenge was cutting out the layers with a tiny blade. Working with very limited space with very little room for error was also very challenging for Ahmed.
But as a true artist, everything and anything is possible – The work of art was finally realised and we now have today was he calls “Line and Layers“.
The dial consists of several layers of high-quality paper cut out to create the shapes of the mountain landscape, and more layers to create the Palace. The lines are the finishing touch used to create the atmosphere and character on the dial.
