Strokes of a Reed Pen: Arabic Calligraphy
Nihad Dukhan, Ph.D.
Dr. Nihad Dukhan’s modern Arabic calligraphy designs have a cross-cultural and personal form. He also creates classical designs using natural ink on ahar paper and acrylic on canvas, with pure gold and gouache color geometric and vegetal ornamentations. A native of Gaza, Palestine, Dukhan is now based in Farmington Hills, Michigan, and is a professor of mechanical engineering at University of Detroit Mercy. He received his master’s degrees in Arabic/Islamic calligraphy in Istanbul and the US after 15+ years of study. As a master of this time honored art tradition, he hopes to reach across cultural barriers and provide messages of oneness and shared values.
