Karim Jabbari

Karim Jabbari is a world-renowned calligraphy and light artist. The love he has for light and letters is fueled by his passion to incorporate ancient elements into modern design. The main focus of his art is to build bridges between cultures and civilisations through calligraphy. He uses modern techniques while preserving the essence of classical forms and styles. Because of his wide-ranging talent, he is often sought after to do live performances, art installations, large-scale murals, host workshops, serve as a panelist, and has given lectures in major universities like NYU and Yale.
