About the work

Size: 42 x 28 cm
Place: Grand Sahara
Year: 2019
Digital print on paper / technique: Light calligraphy

“Pride of the Land” made in the Grand Sahara in 2019 by the artist Karim Jabbari, a renowned pioneer in light calligraphy, floats over the sandy dunes, conveying a message of honour through luminescence.

The title “Pride of the Land” is translated from the Arabic language depicted and conveyed through the frozen movement of light, expertly captured by using the technique of long-exposure photography. The Arabic calligraphy showcased incorporates ancient scripts such as Maghribi and Kufic, each holding profound personal significance for the Tunisian-born artist. Jabbari introduces 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.

“Pride of the Land” 2019 is a unique digital print on paper.
