Experience The Beauty Of Letters And Spirits With Three Artists

Text by Huzan Tata

Experience the graphic brilliance of text through art in this group show

Brush strokes create works of art, but words – and text – are artistic innovations too. In a show that celebrates the magic of text as an art form, three artists come together to showcase their graphic beauty. From using them as symbolic elements to deconstructing them in the pages of books, each artist approaches text in their own distinct style…but all their creations highlight the intricacy and inherent artistry of textual characters. You’ll never look at words the same way again.
