An exhibition of contemporary calligraphy by Salah Shaheen at the Z Gallery.
(Dubai, UAE; July, 2015) Four Points by Sheraton Sheikh Zayed Road is pleased to present an exhibition of contemporary calligraphy by Salah Shaheen at the Z Gallery.
Salah Shaheen, a digital calligrapher and an Islamic geometry artist, employs both traditional and modern methods in his artwork. His work is a celebration of one of the oldest artistic traditions.
The exhibition features classical Arabic calligraphy as well as modern style calligraphy. It highlights the important role of integrating this art form, which is a part of Arabian heritage and culture with modern artistic expressions, which follows new styles but at the same time retains its original soul whilst adding a touch of creativity and novelty.
His passion for bringing Arabic art to the forefront is what makes Salah’s work so genuine and special. His sophisticated approach to art is a result of years of learning and experience.
He says: “Calligraphy is about beauty…it lies at the core of arts for learned minds. It also has a profound connection with philosophy and literature.”
Erik Vedsegaard, Complex General Manager at Four Points by Sheraton Sheikh Zayed Road and Downtown Dubai, commented: “We hope that visitors to this exhibition will be inspired by the beauty and skill in these works.”
Salah has taken part in a number of individual and group exhibitions both in the Middle East and internationally.
The exhibition will run until September.
