3D Calligraphy Foad-Hamzeh, 3D Arabic calligrafitti
DIFC Art Nights started at the Dubai International Financial Center with the participation of a group of UAE-based artists, who exhibit collections of their most beautiful artworks to a diverse international audience.
New to this session, held in the Village of the Gate, is the presence of the calligraffiti artworks by the young artist Foad Hamzeh who is known by the name FH.Visual. He combines calligraphy and graffiti (wall drawings) in three-dimensional paintings rich in bold colours. Foad Hamzeh devised his Arabic font Al-Fouad which he used in his calligraffiti artworks.
The impressive collection of 3D calligraphy by Foad Hamzeh is displayed after his artwork that was exhibited in the Art of the World Dubai exhibition early last October was well-received by the visitors. What was remarkable in that show was the interest of a large group of foreign visitors in the paintings of calligraphy painted in the style of calligraffiti.
Foad Hamzeh is a University of Architecture graduate (Art and Design) of The American University of Dubai. He studied painting for years with the artist Haidar Hamaoui, who is known for his mixing of Impressionism and Symbolism. He also studied Arabic calligraphy for two years with the famous calligrapher, Wissam Shawkat.
