One of the most pioneering calligraphers of our time.  Wissam Shawkat developed and established this new script back in the early 2000’s which  is a succinct contemporary approach to modern calligraphy.  It’s aesthetic lies in the fusion and tension of fluidity and sharpness combined allowing for a classical take on modernity.
