Who is Noureddine Aouni?
I am a professor of calligraphy at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Nabeul.
In my modern and contemporary calligraphy works, I work on the marriage and integration between calligraphy and painting (When I paint I calligraphy and when I calligraphy I paint) to give calligraphy views and dimensions that are properly plastic.
I declare that the letter, this plastic unity is necessarily capable of enriching the fields of plastic art (painting, sculpture, ceramics…) if we understand the history of art and aesthetics well.
When I calligraphy I get rid of the linguistic text and deal with the plastic text. So the letter for me is a unity of composition and construction of the work. At this moment the letter becomes a symbol, a signal, a signifier and signified.
