Karim Jabbari began his artistic journey at the tender age of twelve. His difficult childhood was eased by a passion for calligraphy, allowing him to express what he could not in words. Later in life and far from home, calligraphy became a reminder of where he came from and what he left behind. His love for the Arabic language intensified as he began to delve deeper into its beautiful letters, words, and syllables. Always searching for an original concept to breathe more vibrancy and life into his creations, Karim’s work is continuously evolving. Classic Kufic and Maghrebi calligraphy are featured in many of his compositions. This preference arises from the strong pull towards his North African background and his belief in keeping dying traditions alive.

About Letters of Rebellion

Karim’s contribution is meant to explore the hidden meanings of the Arab revolution and expose the human hopes that are expressed by people standing up for their rights. Jabari will put forward a series of calligrahy and abstract paintings on canvases, wood and glass of different sizes and shapes.

eL Seed grew up in France and started spraypainting in late 90’s. Born to Tunisian parents, he continues to foster strong ties to his motherland. Moving to North America, eL Seed’s interests in calligraphy and graffiti collided and fused together. Developing on the tradition lived by the first Arabic calligraphers, eL Seed chooses to paint a message rather than his name; his calligraphic compositions bringing to life what is otherwise perceived as an ‘old’ or ‘dead’ civilization. His work, taking inspiration from the past to encourage hope for the future, has been displayed around the world and featured in many international publications.

About Sajjal ana 3rabi

‘Sajjal ana 3arabi’ is the title of a new exhibition by eL Seed. It’s aim is to bring the viewer into a space that encourages reflection on the profound questions raised by the revolts that gave birth to the so-called ‘Arab Spring’. Expanding his repertoire, eL Seed presents wood sculptures, stained glass compositions, and a range of large-scale canvases to express his thoughts on and reactions to the revolts in Tunisia. The concept for this exhibition centers on the viewers’ experience of change.
