'Abdul Badi Abdul-Musawwir Solo Show'

Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1949, artist Abdul Badi Abdul-Musawwir studied fine art at Kent State University, Boston University and the Massachusetts College of Art. In the 1970s, he was commissioned by the city of Boston to produce two large wall murals - one in the South End and the other in the Mission Hill area of Roxbury. In the late 1990s, he travelled to the UAE and began studying with renowned calligrapher Ali Nada Al-Dori. The works on show in this exhibition depict the artist's unique visual interpretation of Arabic letters and showcase his appreciation of geometry and forms.
