Mahali Mohammed Ahmed Al Murr, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Library Foundation, inaugurated the “Al Owais Forum for Arabic Calligraphy” at the Sultan bin Ali Al Owais Cultural Foundation. One to present a clearer picture of a civilized state, spirit and landmarks.
63 calligraphers participated in the forum, who represented generations of manifestations of Arabic calligraphy and its formations. Their works turned into approximately 110 well-written and drawn pieces. The paintings varied between types of Arabic calligraphy and its vocabulary from gilding and rotation to become paintings full of life, and the connection and separation of letters into graceful artistic formations, and between lines Old, and modern.
One of the participating calligraphers said that in the last four decades, Arabic calligraphy witnessed a revival and renaissance in the Arab countries, and the UAE played an important role in this renaissance.
On the sidelines of the forum, the Foundation organized a seminar entitled "Lights on the Journey of Arabic Calligraphy in the Emirates in Half a Century", which focused on the origin of calligraphy and how it developed.
It is worth noting that the Foundation will continue to display these pieces until October 19.
