1:54 presents 'Signs of Our Times: From Calligraphy to Calligraffiti' published by Merrell Publishers (September 2016) with publication editor Rose Issa and contributing artist Lutz Becker.
Signs of Our Times surveys six decades of a trend – the use of words and letters in art – led by artists from the Arab world and Iran. This unique book considers the work of over 40 key artists, ranging from those who pioneered the calligraphic movement in the 1950s to those who use the written word in their work today.
