Saudi artists adorn Riyadh with Arabic calligraphy

 


RIYADH: Saudi artists are adorning Riyadh with Arabic calligraphy as part of municipal efforts to beautify the capital.

The capital is seeing a transformation, with several emerging development projects aiming to improve people’s living standards and provide a sustainable environment in line with international standards.

Efforts are being made to make Riyadh greener, in addition to embellishing the city’s infrastructure with works of art.

One of the people involved in the calligraphy initiative, graffiti artist Noura bin Saidan, said she wanted the city to be the most beautiful in the world in terms of art and design.

The initiative was launched in March 2020, she told Arab News. I designed the site and chose the right colors for the tunnel on King Khalid Road, which is close to the heritage city of Diriyah. The colors I used are also inspired by the heritage of cities. We took this opportunity to participate in the Year of Arabic Calligraphy 2020, which is led by the Ministry of Culture.

She used the Thuluth font to write the words of the national anthem of Saudi Arabia as the National Day of the countries was approaching and said the idea was to open a wider space for artists to participate in such projects.

After getting approval for the model, we selected some artists based on their experience in this type of art.

Bin Saidan is vice president of arts and architecture at Omran Society and owns a studio called ns4art. Her passion for graffiti and murals began with her master’s thesis on the role of art in beautifying streets and tunnels.

10 years later the dream came true and I started coloring Riyadh, she said.

The artists have moved to the other tunnel, on King Fahd Street, named Cairo Square, which was one of the activities of the 90th National Day of Saudi Arabia. She said the tunnel project took seven days to complete.

Bin Saidan said people were happy with the end result and that she had been contacted by the municipality from different parts of the Kingdom to work with them.

Riyadh weather and project location were among the challenges facing Bin Saidan and her team, as most of the sites were on highways.

And while landscaping roads and tunnels is not her first project, she considered it one of the main ones.

There are more projects to come, but we are waiting for final approval.
