Arabic Graffiti

by Don Karl & Pascal Zoghbi
£24.99   paperback  From Here to Fame (2013)

Arabic Graffiti by Don Karl & Pascal Zoghbi Arabic Graffiti is an international success and remains the standard work on the topic. This new revised edition is extended by a new chapter about graffiti produced during the recent Arab uprisings and an update of graffiti in Bahrain.
 
Arabic Graffiti brings together artists, graffiti writers and typographers from the Middle East and around the world who merge Arabic calligraphy with the art of graffiti writing, street art and urban culture. In addition to a rich assortment of photos featuring Arabic graffiti and street art styles, it includes essays by distinguished authors and scene experts, in which they explore the traditional elements, modern approaches, and the socio-political and cultural backgrounds which have shaped Arabic graffiti movements in the Middle East.
 
Arabic Graffiti is curated and authored by Lebanese typographer Pascal Zoghbi and graffiti writer and publisher Stone aka Don Karl, is an extensive and valuable reference on contemporary graffiti, urban calligraphy and type design in the realm of Arabic letters.
 
With contributions and essays by: Huda Smitshuijzen AbiFarès, Rana Jarbou, Tala F. Saleh, Houda Kassatly and William Parry.

More than four years of research culminated in the publication of the first edition Arabic Graffiti (English) in January 2011. However just then, the Arab uprisings started, and concurrently an explosion of Arabic Graffiti hit the region. Even while residing in Berlin, Don Karl found himself in the middle of these currents. Through various art projects he broadened his contacts with artists, who took part in the Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions, and befriended many of them. Together with Pascal Zoghbi, Don Karl organized Arabic Graffiti exhibitions and events around Arabic Graffiti in Alexandria, Amman, Beirut, Berlin, Bochum, Boston, Cairo, Dresden, Dubai, Frankfurt, Mannheim, Montreal, Nantes, Paris and Weimar, to name a few.
