Wissam Shawkat


(Born in 1974 in Basra. Lives and works in Dubai.)

Wissam Shawkat is a calligrapher turned conceptual artist. His work focuses on Arabic calligraphy and typography, departing from the rigidity of the traditional practice, but retaining its craftsmanship. In recent years, Shawkat has become known for a new calligraphic style, 'Al Wissam', which references a number of traditional scripts and western Abstraction and Cubism.

Shawkat has hosted calligraphy workshops and has participated as an artist and committee member at multiple editions of the Sharjah Calligraphy Biennial and the Dubai International Calligraphy Exhibition. His work is regularly featured in books on Arabic calligraphy and typography, included in museum exhibitions, and acquired by private collectors.
