I fully admit to being endlessly mesmerized by all things Art Nouveau. I adore Art Deco's patterns and its homage to ancient Egyptian and Middle Eastern art, but the curves and puffy shapes of Art Nouveau fascinate me like few styles can. Lately, I've been looking at contemporary Arabic Graffiti, and, because I'm totally Arabic illiterate, I'm finding much of the shapes and compositions meld oddly well with Art Nouveau curves. A dollop of one and a dash of the other, and my subconscious finds ways to expand the cuisine of my own swishes, swashes, and swirls.
