Dee – Chakalligraff

After ten years as a digital art engineer in the motion picture FX industry, Damien “Dee” Coureau discovered in Calligraffiti what the computer could not offer: the beauty of spontaneity. Six years of practice gave his strokes a combination of zen and strength, catching the eye by their rigour and simplicity.

Illustrating the struggle of those qualities, the themes he addresses are often controversial or cynical, and always a pleasure.

El Seed

EL Seed is a ‘calligraffiti’ artist, a blend of the historic art of Arabic calligraphy and of graffiti, mixing street culture from Paris and Arabic history to poetic effect. Born to Tunisian parents in the suburbs of Paris, eL Seed spent his formative years juggling different cultures, languages,  and  identities.  Today eL Seed’s pieces have developed out  of  two worlds colliding, with these  two cultures clashing and blending into one another, to form a new identity, a unique mark and a distinctive style.

EL Seed  uses  intricate  composition  in  his  work  to  call not only on the words and their meaning, but also on their movement, which ultimately lures the viewer into a different state of mind. Working primarily with subjects that seem contradictory, eL Seed’s art reflects the reality of mankind and the world we live in today.


GhalamDAR (“the writer” in Farsi) is an emerging artist, working primarily as a graffiti artist since 2006 (born 1994, Tehran, Iran).

In the beginning as a youngster he wanted to add color to his gray colored hometown, Tehran, and to break the habit and expectancy of watching the same walls he passes by every day by practicing and experiencing variety of graffiti styles. He also cooperated with other Iranian graffiti writers such as Elf crew – between the first emerging graffiti crews in the Middle East – and painted a huge ton of big walls around Tehran.

As Iranian society has never truly experienced a Hip-hop sub-culture he believes his roots lie somewhere else. Approximately parallel with the 80s graffiti and Hip-hop of America there ware radical social streams using graffiti as a media for bringing the Iranian revolution of 1979 up.

GhalamDAR thinks of his roots and the relationship between his artwork and the vandalism of the revolution – and such other Iranian social or artistic streams – and how they influence each other. For gaining his own art expression, GhalamDAR tended to the Saqqakhaneh movement of the 1960s and 1970s, He uses calligraphy, Miniature painting (Negar-gari), folk objects, and Shi’i iconography as parts of his subject inspirations. He avoids the strict rules and preparation rituals of the craft in favor of abstraction. Saqqakhaneh artists directly inspired GhalamDAR to challenge the dominant pictorial material of Iranian street art aiming for developing an aesthetic with particular Iranian markers.

While GhalamDAR’s has undoubtedly been influenced by traditional calligraphic practice, his works share an affinity with the interlocking aesthetic of “wild style” graffiti and traditional calligraphy which demonstrate an amalgamation of these two cultures. Like the letterist works of the Saqqakhaneh artists, GhalamDAR’s text-based pieces have emphasized the pictorial form of Perso-Arabic script over the literary content of traditional calligraphic practice. Commonly, GhalamDAR creates by deconstructing the Iranian folklore stories, legends, talismans,superstitions and generally Iranian culture and traditions. He takes a critical look at the Iranian contemporary identity particularly with post-modern philosophy and his art is a personal investigation through the Iranian art and history.


Born in 1990 in Tunis.
At a young age he was attracted to poetry, setting poems on paper where he expresses his love of humanity, respect and celebrates the spirit of tolerance. Then, during his studies graphic designer, he discovered the fascinating world of typography and the opportunities it provides for the creation and the visual composition of a work. Therefore, he decided to combine the expression of personal feelings, calligraphy and geometric shapes deliver bold compositions on various media, first wall and the canvas that tames quickly.
He was remarkable during many projects, for the elegance of his work and the originality of his compositions that show an unusual sensitivity and seduce the public. Inside harmoniously filled circles, a trained eye will decode short poems written spontaneously, mixing his roots and Arabic calligraphy spirit with Latin characters. For others, it will be the fineness of the line and the agreement text and colors used to draw the eye.
With Inkman, a restless artist in the sense of artist perpetually in research, Calligraffiti becomes a universal language, inviting beauty and understandable by all as evidenced by the success encountered at each of his interventions abroad in the Middle East and Europe.

Jan Koke

Jan Koke was born in Hamburg, raised in Kiel and is now back in Hamburg. In the year 1994 he first came in contact with graffiti / lettering. 2006 he started an education as a layouter, typesetter and printer. That was the time he learned about typography, taught by his master, an old school typesetter. After that he studied communication design in Hamburg to expand his knowledge about the anatomy of letters. In his studies he designed fonts, logotypes and began to work on his calligraphy skills and calligraffiti styles.

Out off these different influences, from all kinds of letters he creates something new, by mixing styles, tools and philosophies.

Jonas Sunset

Born in 1977, Jonas Bournat a.k.a. SUN 7 lives and works in Paris.
SUN7 is obviously a child of the amalgamation of words and images, poetry and colour, art and the streets. In the early 1990s, he discovered New York tag culture. Spray can in hand, he took on the skin of walls in Paris and New York, and moved to performances and installations, not only in Paris, Lyon and Marseille, but also in Shanghai, Hong-Kong and Djakarta.

He then started using canvases, signs and metal plaques. His register became permeated by multiple new influences : action painting, Arabic calligraphy,Latino tattoos, but words and calligraphy remained dominant – a mesh of words, a lace of letters, most often indecipherables but which when combined made portraits and self-portraits. Obvious portaits and coded texts created a subtle play of appearance/disappearance, in which enverything related to calligraphy, glyphs and ideograms became as unreal as can be, nurturing a deep sense of interest and mystery.

Pash Pollock aka The Pash, is a tattoo artist with a strong fetish for calligraphy and stand up comedy. His fascination with lettering dates a few years back, when he was a fresh tattooer in a small street shop, and he got fed up with tattooing “fonts” out of a website because if looked and felt inhuman and boring. Naturally, his first sources of inspiration were tattooers like Big meas, Bj betts, Anrijs straume, Norm and many others. So he ordered books and dvds and started to practice the art, slowly improving and evolving his own style and making people open up to it, rather then mechanically choosing fonts from a screen, and thus becoming the only tattooer in israel who does hand style lettering. Other then that, he’s a music producer for video games and media such as Dark Orbit and UFC.

PowerScripts a.k.a. Brush Lee
A lettering artist based in Lodz, Poland. He started his adventure with letters from graffiti 1996. Then, after a couple of turning points, he went into modern calligraphy and calligraffiti.
Unlike the vast majority of artists, he consciously steps back from the omnipresent Blackletter-ish style to concentrate more on scripts and freehand lettering. Using various lettershapes, he also tries to capture the essence and character of a text or word to amplify their actual meaning.
He believes that “creating a style is like building a prison cell for oneself”, and so he aims at being as versatile as possible, incessantly working on different lettering styles.

Said Dokins

For Said Dokins calligraphy and graffiti are intermediate practices of inscription and trace, of twisting symbolic orders and of political enunciation. Dokins lives and works in Mexico City. His cultural practice takes on contemporary art production, research and cultural management. He has put on curatorial projects related to urban arts and a number of political issues happening in his country. Among other awards, is the winner of the Iberoamerican Contemporary Art Creation Prize, Cortes de Cadiz, Juan Luis Vasallo 2015 in Cadiz, Spain. His work as an artist has been shown nationally and internationally in countries as Spain, Germany, Holland, Belgium, United Kingdom, Argentine, Chile, Brazil, El Salvador, Peru and others. Dokins takes up the economy of medieval calligraphy, the energy and expressiveness of japanese calligraphy, besides creating a poetic based on pre-phonetic writing. For Dokins every experience is a trace, a psychic impression that creates a texture in our symbolic universe. In that sense, calligraphy and graffiti aren’t just on paper and ink, on the walls and spray, but on every event of our existence.

Stas Koorap



Stohead’s artistic passion is to depict the art of writing, which is displayed throughout his oeuvre. Scripture transports information, provokes thoughts and emotions, which coalesce and are then permanently preserved on paper. However, scripture can turn into an aesthetic masterpiece when using the skill of calligraphy. It is this very process combined with the code of the streets that characterize Stohead’s creative work. These codes are composed of lyrics from songs, texts, and or keywords of relevant social issues decoded and organized by the artist. With repetition of the extracted phrases they are then turned into a design and or a three-dimensional sculpture.The arrangement diverts readability and leaves the beholder with the impact of colour figure, and shape. With fierce determination and intense physical labour, Stohead puts his raw emotions and feelings into the sculptures primer.
When the viewer starts to decipher the codes they will be confronted with subtitle references to socio-critical themes and poetical discourse in daily world affairs. The quite aggressive diction in Stohead’s calligraphies evolves from his disillusions, anger, and feelings toward a generation that is overburdened with technology. Stohead represents his cultural identity by seeking inspiration from the Hip-Hop and Punk music scene. He uses their urban vocabulary as a main source of inspiration for his work. Therefore preserving the scripture of the street beyond the digital realm and viewing himself as a modern day historian.

Tarek Benaoum

At 14 years old, a can in hand, he dives into this art form that will never leave his side. Whilst exploring this craft he turns to calligraphy, which he considers an inherent continuity to his passion for lettering. The letterforms he paints talk, and in turn become a “talked about” area. His playground includes public areas, inner city murals, hotels, restaurants, nightclubs … Words from anyone and everyone, words here are meant to be seen and captivating. Tarek explores his own, anti-conformist and original “semantic fuzzing”. His quill has recently brushed the walls of hip places such as the Mama Shelter Hotels, imagined by the TRIGANO family and Philipe STARCK.
