Abu Hurayra said, “The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, went out to a group of his Companions who were laughing and talking. He said, ‘By the One in whose hand my soul is, if you knew what I knew, you would laugh little and weep much.’ Then he left and the people were weeping. Then Allah Almighty revealed to him, ‘Muhammad! Why did you make My slaves despair?’ The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Give good news, guide people and draw near to one another.”

Yokub is a young contemporary graphic artist who creates wonderful art pieces using only pen and marker. Thus far, he has taken part in exhibitions and biennales in Uzbekistan and South Korea.
Spirituality is the main topic of his works, as his aim is to emphasise the unlimited power of Creator. His works are detailed and global at the same time. Through the interplay between graphic lines and geometric forms and butterflies as the symbol of beauty and ephemerality, he generates connections between the materialistic and living elements of our environment.
