This is the blue version of my award-winning piece collected by UOB.
War and Peace explores the intrinsic beauty of calligraphy and the potential of language in contemporary art.
As a metaphor for the “Oneness of Being”, War and Peace presents the recurring and almost binary themes of darkness and light that often define humanity. While the Arabic and Hebrew text stand out in contrast, they are also meant to stand for their shared qualities such as the similarity in sounds of the word ‘Peace’: salam in Arabic, shalom in Hebrew.
Words are broken into dots to blur the difference between languages.
