RAMZ

From childhood, RamZ (Ramzi Saibi) had a real fascination for the arts and very quickly turned towards the form of expression that suited him best: Arabic calligraphy, "image of speech". This Franco-Tunisian artist learns the rules of this art with recognized masters such as Abdel Hamid Djouambi or Yassin Deradra. He also meets renowned calligraphers who will mark and influence him: Amor Jomni, Abdel Ghani Alani, Salah Moussawy, Hassan Massoudy and many others ... RamZ is today the author of a contemporary Arabic calligraphy in the image of its double culture, marked by multiple influences and which, skillfully, is inspired by tradition to tend towards the novelty. With a very modern and urban touch, the artist forges and sculpts shapes and symbols that interpret words. Is it a coincidence that in Arabic the root of the first name "Ramzi" means "symbol"? His works testify to the fusion between Arabic calligraphy and contemporary art, the symbiosis between two cultures, between two worlds, East and West. He insists that each of us is able to read calligraphy, even if we don't read Arabic. Indeed, reading a calligraphy is above all a journey of looking through lines, angles, patterns and their arrangement.
