Karim Jabbari - Light Calligraphy Artist
Light Artist / Graffiti Artist / Graphic Designer
Karim Jabbari began his artistic journey at the tender age of twelve.
A difficult childhood was made easier through the power of calligraphy, allowing him to express what he could not in words. Later in life and far from home, calligraphy became a reminder of where he came from and what he left behind. His love for the Arabic language intensified as he began to delve deeper into its beautiful letters, words, and syllables.
Inspired by old arabic scriptures, and determined to establish a Contemporary approach to calligraphy,he developed his own abstract typography using different patterns, shapes, and colors. Always searching for an original concept to breathe more vibrancy and life into his creations, his work is continuously evolving. Classic Kufi and Maghrebi calligraphy are featured in many of his compositions. This preference arises from the strong pull towards his North African background and the importance of keeping dying traditions alive.
As a member of the LPWA ( light painting world alliance) Karim Jabbari is also considered as one of the most respected light calligraphy artists in the arab world and the creator of the biggest street art festival in tunisia ‘Streets urban festival’.
The love of letters and art is the main source of inspiration for him, and that’s what made him one of the most polyvalent artists. Calligraphy, Street art and light calligraphy are Karim Jabbari’s universe.
