Hassan Massoudy (Nedjef, Iraq/Paris, France).
Massoudy’s calligraphy is a skilful combination of the present and the past, sophistication and naturalness, tradition and modernity. His calligraphic compositions include words and expressions from poets and writers all over the world, as well as proverbs. Looking at the works of the Iraqi master, one can sense the movement and flexibility of lines, a perfect balance between emptiness and fullness, the concrete and the abstract.
