Abd A. Masoud

Arabic calligraphy with a difference

Dream of a child  

The child may live here, there or anywhere. It might be my brother, your daughter or our neighbour’s child. It has dreams and scribbles them on a canvas.

The child longs for a family, friends, to grow up in peace. It wishes to be educated, to be independent, to find a job and have a family. It longs to be free - free to say no: no to drugs, war, violence, no to all things evil - free to say yes to peaceful coexistence.

In co-operation with the Jordanian Embassies andthe Honorary consulates , the artist is donating the artworks. They will be sold at an auction and all proceeds will go to benefit of SOS-Kinderdorf Amman.

In the future it is planned to exhibit the whole series in different international locations. Time and location will be announced on the Calendar as it is planned.

Dream of a child - Imst

Die Ausstellung des jordanischen Künstlers Abd A. Masoud erzählt von Kinderträumen. Träume, die ein Kind auf die Hausmauer kritzelt. Es wünscht sich Freunde und ein liebevolles Zuhause. Es möchte frei sein, um Nein sagen zu können zu Krieg und Gewalt. Frei sein, um Ja zu sagen, Ja für ein friedliches Zusammenleben.

Der Künstler bezeichnet seine Arbeit als eine neue Form der arabischen Kalligraphie. Er formt die arabische Schrift neu, kombiniert mit Ornamenten und Symbolen, um aus einer bilderlosen Darstellung eine Geschichte zu erzählen.
