Taha Al-Hiti

Taha Al-Hiti is an architect by profession. From a very early age however he was enchanted with writing, in particular the way Arabic letters, words and lines joined to form calligraphy. Touched by the teachings of master calligrapher Abbas Shakir Joody al-Baghdadi, he soon learned to distinguish between the different styles e.g. Turkish, Baghdadi and Egyptian and even learnt to 'guess the calligrapher' who was behind an exquisite pieces of calligraphy! "It was from calligraphy, I fell in love with Architecture; Calligraphy in its larger scale is linked to Architecture, both being essentially based on proportion and measure."

Artworks by Taha al-Hiti are presently on show as part of ayagallery's current exhibition Words...Fragmented...Unbroken.
