About the work

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

In the photograph “The Light is Everywhere” captured in Diriyah in 2021 by the artist Karim Jabbari, a renowned pioneer in light calligraphy, he employs his technique to disseminate the text throughout various areas of the landscape, effectively embodying the notion of light being everywhere.

The title “The Light is Everywhere” is translated from the Arabic text depicted and conveyed through the frozen movement of light, expertly captured 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.

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