Zakariya Calligraphy

“Because calligraphy isn’t bound by the need to represent objective reality, it’s free from the cultural and political constraints associated with the pictorial arts. This sets the calligrapher free and, at the same time, adds new constraints. This constant tension between constraint, tradition, and standards makes Islamic calligraphy neither a representational art nor an abstract one but something entirely other—a living, evolving art of the word, of meaning itself.”
