Mouneer Al-Shaarani

Mouneer Al-Shaarani is a master Syrian calligrapher, designer and writer. He is highly regarded internationally for his innovative synthesis of traditional arabic lettering and modern shapes. In 1977, he graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus. 

After living abroad for some time, he returned home to Syria where he feels his work can have the greatest impact. Through the poems, prayers and sufic philosophy in his work, he hopes to inspire his fellow citizens who tragically continue to suffer the dire conditions of war.
