Pattern classes

Adam is a leading specialist in geometric and biomorphic (Arabesque) pattern, a traditional cursive art form that can be found universally. The visual crystallisation of movement, biomorphs express the archetypal cycles inherent in nature, from plant growth, sound vibrations and oceanic currents to the expansion of galaxies. He currently co-runs immersive study trips to locations all over the world, he has also contributed chapters to the best selling Thames and Hudson book Arts and Crafts of the Islamic Lands and is currently working on an extensive manual on biomorphic pattern.
