Mouneer Al-Shaarani talks to Lebanon's Mustaqbal TV. Excerpt: "My life’s work has a purpose that goes far beyond creating beautiful artworks. My is goal  to bring Arabic calligraphy back to basics, to honor its origins and keep it true to its essence while applying a contemporary lens to it."
World Arabic Language Day & The Work of Mouneer Al-Shaarani

On December 18th, the Arabic language is celebrated in all its glory. The language is commemorated and appreciated for its richness as a pillar of cultural diversity. One artist with a deep appreciation for the Arabic script is the internationally acclaimed Mouneer Al-Shaarani, who uses calligraphy art to inspire the people of his nation in Syria. By creating highly intellectual work that reflects his interest in modern poetry and literature, as well as Islamic, Christian and Sufi philosophy, Al Shaarani creates art for people to connect with and feel.
