Ismail Ahmad Kamran
Ismail Ahmad Kamran is a contemporary jeweller residing in the UK. His Pakistani roots and interest in modern art reflect in his designs, expressing his religious and cultural identity in a modern context. Ismail gets his inspiration from Islamic arts, (modern) architecture and optical art. Ismail’s pieces, immersed in both eastern and western cultures, spark the interest of a diverse audience, from the villages of Punjab to the cities of Europe. He uses a combination of modern and traditional jewellery-making techniques to create architectural and visually complex pieces of jewellery. Ismail’s current work explores the use of titanium. The unique features and the limited flexibility of the metal allow him to use innovative techniques to create contemporary art.
Ismail Ahmad Kamran is a contemporary Pakistani jeweller based in London. He comes from a family of jewellers who have been in the trade for over seven generations. From a young age, Ismail’s interest in jewellery was sparked because of his heritage. He used to help his father in their jewellery store, picking up small techniques here and there.
His passion for jewellery remained and he decided to study Jewellery and Silversmithing at the University for the Creative Arts, where he graduated in 2022.
