Yazan Halwani’s Calligraffiti

I recently came across a fantastic mural by Fantastic mural, “Our grandfathers invented the zero, and their grandchildren became zeroes” (top image) by Yazan Halwani

Halwani says, he wants to instigate “cross-cultural conversations” and to inspire a “positive view of the Arab world.” He’s been challenging the status quo with prominent murals around Lebanon’s capital city which has earned him the nickname Beirut’s Banksy. 

Halwani has been credited with spawning the ‘calligraffiti’ movement after discovering one of his uncle’s calligraphy books.

“Do not become who hurt you.” LNA x JRU 2016

Our first mural collaboration was a huge success and this goes as my year ender piece for 2016. Didn’t expect the outcome of our spontaneous art collaboration would come out better than we’ve expected. Hence, I am going to stick with black and white because it looks classy and static. What a ride 2016 has been! More art collaborations and commissions for 2017!
