Skyfall by Simon Silaidis

Illustration // Monday, 20 May 2013
1

With a style that mixes the aesthetics of Western, Asian, and Arabic calligraphy, artist Simon Silaidis intertwines the cultural traditions of these disparate parts of the world in a single harmonious script. Applying them to the bare surfaces of abandoned urban buildings, Silaidis' calligraphy conveys a message of change and hope in impoverished landscapes, both physically and philosophically. "Skyfall" is a moving video documenting this artistic process, each gest symbolizing a simple step toward inner peace and human unity.
