Nja Mahdaoui at Meem Gallery

Nja Mahdaoui is a Tunisian visual artist and a calligrapher

Well, in his lecture, he was talking about how his art of calligraphy is not based on traditional calligraphy; he works on his art to make it look more global. If you pay attention to the calligraphy text he writes, his words don’t say anything specific. He concentrate to make his work more global, so people out there are not missing any information, and they would look at it as an artistic piece.

" It is the world of signs which is disturbed: no signification- explanation, nor any designation to trivialize a memorized thought. With its distance from the world; the sign offers a new visual opportunity of a presence - material synthesis, signal - temporal - global graphics. Nja Mahdaoui
