Rose Issa: ‘Signs, Traces and Calligraphy’ : Crossing Boundaries

The first international impact of contemporary Arab and Iranian artists in the West started with "Signs, Traces and Calligraphy", an approach that was not only new in the Western world - because they referred to their own cultural background - but encouraged artists to impose the own original signature and aesthetics in the world art scene.
