Updates from Monumental 11/11

Closing Night Event with Wissam Shawkat

On the closing night of his exhibition Monumental 11/11 at Tashkeel, calligrapher Wissam Shawkat will give a talk/presentation and a tour of his exhibition, discussing the processes through which his new works were developed.

“Calligraphy is the sum of all art forms – it is the art of drawing lines, connecting points, balancing forms. It is about perfecting the shapes so that they are in tandem – rhythm and contrast; harmony and the unexpected. It is a visual form of thoughts and articulation”. Wissam Shawkat
