KUFIC calligraphy transformed into 3D – a charity art exhibition
November 27-29, 2014
Kufic is the oldest calligraphic form among the various Arabic scripts and consists of a modified form of the old Nabataean script. A brand new charity exhibition curated by Emirati artist and entrepreneur Maisoon Al Saleh brings together renowned artists from the UAE and around the world to showcase Kufic calligraphy through innovative 3D works created with a 3D printing pen.
The artists, Azza Al-Qubaisis, Darwin Japat Guevarra, Gary Yong, Janet Bellotto, Khulood Al Saleh, Mohammed H Hindash and Sertac Tasdelen have all donated their creations to help raise funds for medical research under the patronage of Al Jalila Foundation.
The technology of the 3D printing pen has been made available by Precise Trading, who specialise in bringing 3D printing and related technology to the UAE market. The 3Doodler is an exciting product for artists, professionals and hobbyists to enhance their designs in 3D and give it a more realistic feel.
The exhibition, which is free to attend and open to all, will take place from November 27th – 29th 2014. The opening of the exhibition starts 7pm on Wednesday November 26th.
