Making of the Master, The Art of Arabic Calligraphy

Open throughout the year, the John Addis Gallery of Islamic Art highlights the British Museum’s commitment to engaging people of all backgrounds with the cultures of the Middle East.

The MBI Foundation financially supported a recent exhibition here that showcased the art of Arabic calligraphy.

This art requires extreme discipline and years of training. Calligraphers learn by copying a series of practice texts under the supervision of a master.

Work displayed in the exhibition included many contemporary calligraphers such as Muhammad al-Buhairi, Hilal Kazan, Ayman Hasan, and others.
