The artist's biography
"Calligraphie" by Hassan Massoudy
Hassan MASSOUDY is a calligrapher from southern Iraq who left Baghdad to discover the world of painting and images. In 1969 he started studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and graduated in 1975, deciding to stay in Paris.
“This is the start of a new era for calligraphy. Lovers of antiquity and the exotic may well be disappointed, for Hassan MASSOUDY, far from being a living fossil of classic Arabic calligraphy, is very much an artist of our time. His art is rooted in the turn of the 20th century, despite his deep roots in the Middle East.” Michel TOURNIER.
“His calligraphic work combines the East of his origins and the West he has adopted. Above and beyond such material borders, this man, who is separated from his homeland but not from his roots, depicts things that unite all peoples, suspending peace and freedom in space. […]” Lilas VICAIRE.
“The calligrapher’s skill and soul converge in the nib of the pen and the ink, through which essence and sense flow like the blood in his veins. His entire soul is absorbed by the ink, coming back to life at the tip of his nib […]
[…] Because the calligrapher dwells in his art, he gets involved in his body language. He soars as light as a letter or carries the weight of another missive. Expression can be a great moment of freedom for him. He yells when he has something to say, and pours out his feelings.” Hassan MASSOUDY, Calligrapher. Flammarion. 1986.
