We all have already seen some calligraphy. Asian calligraphy, Western calligraphy or hebrew calligraphy are the most known.
What is graffiti? "writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place." -Online Dictionary
The last ten years we have seen work by calligraffiters such as Retna, Keith Haring, Shoe or El Seed and many more but too often we associate their work with murals.
What is calligraffiti ? is it the art of writing or the writing of the art?
I have tired to classify my art and can't find a correct term to define everything I put in the lines as I create them. The "curvisive" lines are dancing and writing poetry. They are combining multiple cultures through their similarity with traditional calligraphies. I find them beautiful and irresistible. They are expressing freedom and hopefully innocence. They are fresh and surprising.
If words could express it would art be necessary?
