VERTU x Wissam Shawkat：Inject Unique Elements of Calligraphy Into VERTU
Arabic calligraphy is a traditional art form in the Arab world and an important part of Islamic culture. Arabic calligraphy specifies the rules and format of the Arabic alphabet, so that each letter has a specific shape and stroke. Arabic calligraphy is characterized by its smooth, beautiful lines and ornate decoration.
Wissam 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'.
