5 letters

by Samir Sayegh

Limited & numbered edition of 99 copies.
Printed on Epson Hot Press Bright White paper with a 9-colour pigment ink printer
20 x 20 cm


Five prints in a calque handmade envelope, featuring each a different Arabic letter, in a superposition of two different calligraphic styles in two distinctive colours.

Typical of Samir’s work on letters throughout his career and exhibitions, which he pushes to abstraction in a unique, minimalistic style, this collection of prints exemplifies Samir’s quest “to make calligraphy an art by itself, an art based on form, that doesn’t need to draw on the content of language.”
