Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?

Kamleh As’ad – My field of study was in communication & electronic engineering but my interest was always in art. 3 years ago I started with drawing trying different mediums until I found my passion in Arabic calligraphy, I was attracted to its uniqueness and its flexibility to create beautiful and creative compositions. I was most influenced by the art and words of my calligrapher teacher Mohammed Mandi. I liked mostly how he combined calligraphy with portraits. And his advice words to remember that becoming a calligrapher you need to always “love, tolerate and persist”.

L.C. – What do you think about the concept of this festival? In which way did it inspire you?

K.A. – It’s good to gather artists from all different culture in the same festival especially in the present time where conflicts are everywhere in the world, art makes everyone closer to each other as it is a universal langueage.
