An upcoming art exhibition offers a new take on traditional calligraphy coupled with a unique concept of art interpretation.

Dubai art space The Third Line is set to host a new solo exhibition by Iranian artist Golnaz Fathi. Titled Line | Khat, the new show throws the spotlight on Fathi's unconventional calligraphic style where she uses ballpoints and rollerballs to create abstract writings inscribed onto diaries and notebooks, while a combination of those non-traditional mediums and acrylic paint result in the larger canvas works. Interestingly, in an attempt to make the artworks more inclusive to every viewer, Fathi consciously pens the words illegibly, making it seemingly incomprehensible, which then allows for a wider scope of interpretation.
