Hassan Al Massoud


also credited as Hassan Massoudy. One of the most iconic Arabic calligraphers globally, Hassan Massoudy. After an extensive number of exhibitions and publications this artist cannot be easily not recognised. The artistic sense put into the calligraphy, bending the rules of Arabic alphabet writing yet maintaining the letter’s characteristics with a significant twist of individuality made him in the position where he is now. And of course, his loyalty to graphically reveal the beauty of articulate quotes.

Born in 1944, at the town of Najaf in Iraq, mentored by several number of Iraqi calligraphers and almost at age of 20 years old flee from Iraq to attended the École des Beaux-Arts (School of fine Arts) in Paris. Hassan was seen performing his calligraphy live in Guy Jacquet’s on-stage performance, Arabesque.
