October Gallery

Hassan Massoudy

Breath, Gesture & Light

7th December 2017 - 27th January 2018

October Gallery presents a new solo exhibition by master artist-calligrapher, Hassan Massoudy.  This will be his second solo exhibition at the gallery.

Hassan Massoudy is an artist for whom the world itself remains the most sublime creative force.  His work features the texts of a diverse range of writers, from poet, Charles Baudelaire and philospher, Jean-Jacques Rousseau to Virgil and Ibn 'Arabi.  A sense of balance prevails in his work, whether between erudite discipline and artistic experimentation, or as played out through his understanding of the vigorous use of line, strength of gesture, abandon and grace.

More information can be found on the October Gallery Website here.
