Samir-leporello

Typical of Samir’s work on letters throughout his career and exhibitions, which he pushes to abstraction in a unique, minimalistic style, this leporello 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”.
