Mohammed Mandi: Luminous Letters

2 September

AED 10

There’s a lot of more contemporary calligraphy around; this shows how much richness can be found in work from a more traditional but still highly distinctive stylist. Mandi, who lives and works in Abu Dhabi, was the UAE’s first professional calligrapher. The eminent Emirati artist/designer is recognised internationally for an individual style that combines letters and words to form 3D images via a technique of meticulous overlays that means a single work in some cases will take years to complete. Among other commissions he has produced designs for UAE and Bahraini banknotes; passports for the UAE, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, and Kuwait; and logos for numerous government ministries and commercial establishments. To 4 December.
