Mouneer Al-Shaarani art

The paintings in Al Waha, and Al Waha's logo, are by renowned calligrapher artist Mouneer al-Shaarani.

Al-Shaarani was born in 1952 in Syria. He has worked as a calligrapher since 1967 and graduated from the College of Fine Arts in Damascus in 1977. Al-Shaarani was a student of the great Syrian calligrapher Badawi al-Dirani.

Al-Shaarani is a leading light in the field of Arabic calligraphy. His work extends from the traditional to the experimental by combining calligraphy with modern art, creating thus genuine oriental pieces bearing his unique mark and brilliant insight into shaping the meaning of Arabic poetry, sayings and the Holy Koran.

Over the 30 years that span his career, al-Shaarani has exhibited and taught all over the world. He has contributed to a number of magazines and written a number of books on the subject.
