Mokhtar El Baba's Hurufiyyat Gallery

This collection presents a fairly abstract style of calligraphy that Mokhtar El Baba developed in recent years. The idea behind this innovative style is to present a blend of Arabic letters ("Huruf" in Arabic) that do not necessarily form recognizable words, yet conform closely to the rules of classic calligraphy. The result is a genuine style of calligraphy that is true to the classical art, yet that can be appreciated by Arabic and non-Arabic readers alike.
