The art of Arabic calligraphy

Posted on November 3, 2012 by Toothpicker

I am not sure if there is such a term, but I think I am a "compulsive learner". I constantly want to learn new skills even though I barely have the time to pursue them.
I have always been interested in different cultures especially Arabic, partly due to my fascination with its arts [...]

Art exhibitions in New York ( Fall 2012)

Bold graphics can be seen everywhere in Helsinki
 
Not many people are aware of the amount of graphics that surround us in our everyday lives. Yet walking down the streets, we are constantly absorbing messages ( consciously or not) from adverts, signage and banners, there is just no escape.
In Helsinki, it is even [...]
