Asmahan A. Mosleh is a UK-based artist who does more than just create beautiful mandalas- she puts her heart, soul, and time into designing and painting these intricate works of art. Mosleh spends between 8 and 54 hours on a single mandala, and you can clearly see why they take as long as they do. The pieces, often gilded with gold leaf, are published on her Instagram, @murderandrose.
The intricate designs start with a pencil outline which are then traced in pen, and ending with a colourful detail of paint. Pearls of gold are added as finishing touches that give the mandalas a bit of texture, and add light the in-depth designs. Mosleh also works straight from start to finish, and immerses herself in the entire process. She insists on completing one before moving on to a new design.
