Calligraphy is the art of designing & producing decorative lettering by hand. Throughout history cultures all over the world have developed various styles & techniques. This exhibition celebrates artists who combine traditional & contemporary approaches. Renee Alexander adds illustrative elements to her elegant & crisp English language calligraphic expressions of famous quotes. Neda Shojei takes Persian calligraphy in bold directions with colourful & abstracted letterforms that intertwine with layers of expressive brushstrokes & textures.
