Arabic calligraphy is a bridge here, for visual interaction, expressing radical statements, raw emotions or subversive cultural comments. Diversity is not seen as a limit, but an input to dialog. The aim, in this beautiful work, where art, culture and aesthetics combine is to cancel the distance between cultures and lead them to know each other, discovering new affinities. The overcoming of boundaries is evoked in the making of the book, where the artists melted their drawing styles, visions, and ideas. Calligraphy is mixed with the iconic language of the Western world. Linear arabesques and pop images emerge. A new cultural syncretism, where the fine taste for the sign, melts with western iconography. Not only a visual component, but also a message of solidarity, against the paradoxes of globalization: war, intolerance, racism.
