The Infl3ctor made a strong showing in Beirut for the White Wall festival 2017. As part of Digital Calligraffiti performances and workshops I had the chance to work with world-class Calligraffiti artists like Shoe (the father of Calligraffiti!), Schriftzug, and Moe.
The theme for the festival was “East Meets West” and the calligraffiti works were meant to symbolically re-unite the previously divided city. One of the standout works on the Infl3ctor was a “meeting of the alphabets” with a large X (meeting) surrounded by Schriftzug’s Schwabacher inspired script and Moe’s Arabic. We went big with a projection that was 5 floors tall!
Much respect to REK crew (Moe, Exist, Spaz, Meuh, Chad the Mad, Anoy One, Ahmed) for showing us the city… and its walls!
