About the work

Size: 42 x 28 cm
Place: Diriyah
Year: 2021
Digital print on paper / technique: Light calligraphy

Taken in Diriyah in 2021 by the artist Karim Jabbari, “Light Seeds” is translated from the Arabic text depicted through Light Calligraphy, a technique of long-exposure photography, capturing the movement of light painting in one take. The Arabic calligraphy shown incorporates ancient scripts such as Maghribi and Kufic, each holding profound personal significance for the Tunisian-born artist who pioneered Light Calligraphy as well as the concept of “Calligraphity”, a term he coined to blend graffiti with traditional calligraphy, giving rise to a fresh genre of street art now celebrated globally.

“Light seeds” 2021 is a unique digital print on paper.
