Abstract

Visual arts created by culturally Islamic people from the seventh century onwards are referred to as Islamic art. Islamic art has taken a way of unveiling the interior of the art and its cultural, conceptual, and social messages since its creation and separation from traditional art. This study aims to examine art from an Islamic viewpoint to gain a thorough understanding of Islamic art, its styles, and values. The key goals were to find out what factors influence the establishment of Islamic art and to comprehend the importance of art in Islamic culture. A thematic analysis based on literature was used as the methodology. According to previous scholars, Islamic art represents spiritual harmony, and appreciation of beauty was of great significance in art. The suggestion was drawn that art and what constitutes art are strongly influenced by the history and values of particular communities or religious affiliations. Islamic thinkers take a bold new approach to Islamic art, believing human to be the most divine being formed by Allah (swt).
