VERTU Signature Touch Calligraphy Series: An Inheritance of Traditional Artistic Elements

Arabic calligraphy is the art of writing Arabic characters in the Islamic era, which has a long history and a wide variety of fonts. It is generally believed that Arabic calligraphy occupies an important position in the history of Arab Islamic culture and the field of world culture and art, and is the spiritual wealth created by the Arab people. In general, Arabic calligraphy is a unique writing art form with a deep historical and cultural background.

 

After 1400 years of development, its techniques, modeling, and artistic expression have reached the extreme, fully reflecting the Arab nation's aesthetic taste, and greatly enriching the spiritual life of global citizens.

 

 

Wissam Shawkat, born in Baghdad, Iraq, is a deeply inspired and creative illustrator and calligraphic artist. His artistic career is like an abstract painting, full of rich colors and profound connotations. His illustrations are like abstract dreams, blending lines and color to create a unique visual language. These works are both emotional and poetic in a mysterious way, which makes the viewer fall into the infinite beauty of art.

 

Wissam collaborated with VERTU to design four bespoke Signature Touch handsets. Each carries a unique calligraphy design, which is matched with unique wallpapers for the display, echoing the design of the phone. Wissam created the original designs to honor the theme of 'love'.

 

 

Wissam Shawkat's collaboration with VERTU is not only a combination of technology and art but also a fusion of cultures. Drawing on his deep Arabic cultural background, he injected unique elements of calligraphy and illustration into the design of the phone, giving the brand a richer cultural connotation.
