Egyptian Artist Brilliantly Illustrates the Meaning of 35 Arabic Words with Calligraphy
In a bid to make Arabic language more accessible, Egyptian graphic artist Mahmoud Tammam took it upon himself to illustrate the meaning of simple Arabic words by manipulating the shape of their letters.
As part of a new experimental project illustrating the meanings of Arabic words by manipulating the shapes of their letters, Egyptian graphic artist Mahmoud Tammam has published a number of works in which he fashions images out of the alphabet to make Arabic language acquisition easier, according to Huffington Post Maghreb.
The pieces incorporate elements of zoomorphic calligraphy, but the collection, however, also illustrates the meanings of objects and concepts. Arabic literally couldn't have been made easier.
