About the work

Size: 42 x 28 cm
Place: Lebanon
Year: 2016
Digital print on paper / technique: Light calligraphy

Against the wild seascape, “I Dream in My Loneliness”, was captured in Lebanon in 2016 by the artist Karim Jabbari, a renowned pioneer in light calligraphy. The title “I dream in my loneliness” is translated from the Arabic text 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.

“I Dream in my Loneliness” 2016 is a unique digital print on paper.
