The Rutgers Camden MSA and the Rutgers-Camden Art Students League are honored to host Calligraphy artist, Faraz Khan, who will demonstrate the beauty of Arabic Calligraphy, display the technicalities needed to learn the art, and provide the participants with a hands on experience.
Faraz Khan Art Studio’s mission is to revive the movement of Islamic Art through Arabic Calligraphy in the Muslim world, particularly in the West. As cheap, plastic imitations are prevalent in Muslim households, Calligrapher Faraz seeks to bring back authentic, creative Islamic Art into the vast culture of the Muslims. In his words, “I express my intellectual longing for creative ideas through Islamic art by fusing colors, lies, dots, and words together to inspire a meaning worth imagining. My work explores universal, values of love, life, faith, prayer, beauty, and divine that synthesizes feelings and pictograms through lettering.”
