Celebrated artist Wissam Shawkat's live installation for Buro 24/7
At Sole DXB
With close to 30k Instagram followers, and previous projects with the likes of Hermès and Chopard under his belt, Shawkat's star is very much on the rise. His beautiful style of calligraphy – a cherished Middle Eastern art form – is now named after the man himself: 'Al Wissam style', and highly regarded among the culture vultures.
Yesterday, Buro 24/7 and Wissam Shawkat debuted a live art installation at Sole DXB. Wissam meticulously painted his unique style of calligraphy on a huge stretched white canvas – to almost complete the piece he is calling 'Love From the Sole'. Take a look at the exclusive pictures below, and if you didn't catch us yesterday – come say hi to Wissam and Buro 24/7 at the last day of Sole today: Where we will be finalising the art collaboration from 2–8pm.
