URBAN CALLIGRAPHY / Simon Silaidis
Urban Calligraphy, as the term suggests, is
calligraphy within rural, urban and suburban
surroundings. It is unique calligraphy that
escapes from the ink into the paper, and from
the boring surroundings of a calligraphy lab to
expose itself in public places, abandoned
buildings, the streets and all sorts of surfaces;
and using materials that one would not normally
think could be used.
Simon’s vision of a new world of calligraphy based
in the tranquility and symmetry dominating our
surroundings is in fact the inner change that he
proposes to the world. Sometimes, one person's
vision can make a difference--and this man’s vision
has given birth to a new artistic movement that is
gaining an increasing following around the world.
Some may say he is a dreamer...but hopefully he
is not the only one.
Artist Bio:
Simon Silaidis is a designer, a thinker, a vision-er,
a pioneer. Lately, he has applied his life's love of
calligraphy toward the rural, urban and suburban
surroundings of Asia and Europe. You will spot his
work in abandoned places, in the streets and in his
studio using ink and bamboo pens. His style is a mix
of Western, Asian and Arabian calligraphy, and his
twelve year successful experience as a designer is
only the start to what lies ahead.
