Illegible: An Exhibition by Muhammad Zaman

Sat, Sep 24 - Sat, Oct 22
All Day
Free
WNY Book Arts Center • 468 Washington St, Buffalo 14203

Description

The “Illegible” project consists of a series of works in acrylic and mixed media on canvas and paper. The mix of languages that the artist uses – three different languages that make up his identity: English since he’s an American citizen, Bengali as the language of his fatherland, and Arabic which is the language of the religion he belongs to – and the further artistic elaboration of the composition involves the juxtaposition of different layers of color and words, that will make the work illegible. The curiosity in decoding a message supports the importance of mutual respect despite the impossibility of communicating or understanding each other.

The themes dear to the artist, and much discussed in our day, have to do with immigration, cultural differences and mutual respect, and peaceful
coexistence. The “Illegible” series is a dance between language and communicability. The titles of the works create a path of meaning that everyone can break down and rebuild, or follow as presented by the artist.

Muhammad Z Zaman is a calligraffiti artist living in Buffalo. His personal style incorporates three different languages that make up his identity. His style moves from ancient calligraphy to post-modern abstractionism. He exhibited in art galleries, museums, and art fairs in Buffalo, NYC, London, Rome, and Miami, among other locations. His work as Public Art appears in several locations in NY State. His concepts are about the peaceful coexistence of different cultures. He aims to bring the community together and learn from each other. His favorite media is acrylic on canvas or muralism.
