Arabic calligraphy and islamic arts have been developed through the ages of the Islamic civilization that covered large areas of the world such as the Middle East, West Asia, North Africa and large parts of Europe. This civilization has developed large areas in both arts and science.

The Arabic Calligraphy has developed through the eras and become an art that is mainly used to deliver the Holy Quran phrases and quotes as well as poetry and Arabic words.

Recently, the Arabic Calligraphy is affected by modern arts such as digital art and graffiti. In my Arabic calligraphy artwork, I try to find the link between the Arabic Calligraphy and the modern arts and how they melt together to produce modern Arabic typography artworks.
