Noor Unnahar: a world of poetry and visual art

by Jessica

Okay, prepare yourselves to be overwhelmed by the world of poetry and visual art. While I was crushing on Noor Unnahar’s art before I started writing this, it’s nothing compared to what I feel after looking through her stuff to find my favourites. I’m completely overwhelmed. I almost screamed out loud. “They’re all my favourites! What the hell! This girl is brilliant!” She combines so many things in her creations, and it’s sosososo beautiful.

Which is why I am overwhelmed by Noor Unnahar today.

Noor Unnahar: a world of poetry and visual art

Because let me tell you – we’re going on an adventure through the land of visual art and poetry today. I was going to say something about how this is some kind of amazing poetry that is both art and poetry, but isn’t all poetry art? This is something more than words though. Noor Unnahar has created her own kind of mixed media poetry. It’s free verse meets art journaling meets photography. Most importantly, though, it moves me to the core.

About Noor Unnahar:

Noor Unnahar is a 19 year old Pakistani girl, but really she’s just so many things. She is a writer and an artist, but she’s also a blogger + YouTuber (a super pro one – look at this work with me-page omg), a blog designer and a business student. Her blog is about books, art, lifestyle and design and she likes tea and statement necklaces. I’m sure she is many more things that I don’t even know about, but one thing is for sure – she’s a poet.

(I’m making you go back and look at it again now, idk if that’s proper blogging but DEAL WITH IT) The one about kindness (no 1 of the two above) made me cry a little bit, and the bathroom tiles give me hope. Which isn’t a sentence I ever thought I would say. Noor Unnahar: a world of poetry and visual art
“Make your name something completely, terrifyingly, beautifully out of this world” is my new motto. Noor Unnahar: a world of poetry and visual artPoetry + embroidery + floral photography = be still, my beating heart.   Noor Unnahar: a world of poetry and visual artNoor Unnahar: a world of poetry and visual artShe really makes me want to start art journaling, too. It looks amazing. (I’d probs do it digitally like my friend and fellow artist Kelly did!)

So yeah. I could’ve made this post twice as long really. I just love this so much. And I’m kinda jelly of the flowers and green leaves she seems to have around her. Everything looks rotten here still, but soon. SOON.

Aaaanyway, please check out Noor’s stuff – she is truly inspiring! Here’s her blog Noor’s Place, her YouTube and Instagram – but she’s on other social media and you’ll find the links to those on her blog!

I love Noor too!!!!! Sensational, inspirational, all-kinds-of-admiring-words-ational. I’m really glad I found her art and blog because that’s exactly the type of content I’ve been looking for… but found something more. And I ain’t even mad.
By the way, your blog falls into the unexpected-discovery category as well! #blessed

Thank you for sharing and inspiring us Jessica with your ‘discovery’;-) Dear Unnahar , I’m sure you must have been asked before but have you published an anthology of your poems? If so where are they available? We live in Islamabad , is there a bookstore here that stocks it? My daughter is enthralled by your writing and has decorated her bedroom wall with snapshots of your writings. But she would definitely like a book to hold and read and also gift to her friends. Thanks again.
