Declaration

Art installation Declaration by the artist eL Seed, next to Dubai Opera in Burj Park in Dubai, UAE – a part of Art EMAAR project.


October 6, 2020


Declaration was the first scuptural work of the artist, who uses Arabic calligraphy to spread his messages.

The words were taken from a poem by Nazir Qabbani, a Syrian poet famed for his sensual compositions, who wrote to his wife telling her no matter how much she aged, she would always be beautiful to him. I took those words to make a similarly emotional testimony to my art and make a love declaration to calligraphy.*
