We all have our ways to tell stories, especially those of our family. I feel my self comfortable talking with image and letters. As I am the result of different culture and influenced by many others I wanted to pay a tribute to my father. My father travelled in middle east several times and brought me books and pages of calligraphy that have guided some of my creative influence. 
Starting from roman letters, drawn by hand, I took the inspiration of arabic and persian calligraphy to create the letters through the defined borders of the roman letters. The rigor of the roman letters are nicely seduced by the curves of the calligraphic pen. 
__ THE POSTERS
 
Serie of posters made after researching
shapes and colors. At this point, letters are
transcending their style and become
less pictural and more graphic. Each pieces
of the A, E, C and J are activated and
start living by itself. The future is not only
computerized but is calligraphic.
