Ghaleb Hawila was born in 1993 in Sour, south of Lebanon. He studied Graphic Design as an undergraduate and he then went on to study the classical art of Arabic calligraphy with acclaimed masters including Fadi Ouayid.
Fascinated by the endless possibilities of this timeless art, Ghaleb seeks to approach it with a new eye. His work comes from deep understanding of Middle-Eastern heritage, spiritual paths, and continuous search for origin, cause and effect. He recently participated in The Sharjah Calligraphy Biennial, 8th edition, 2018 where he showcased his work “Nuqta”.
