Kamal Boullata—Palestinian Master of Abstract Art and Arabic Calligraphy—Dies, Aged 77 | The Art Newspaper


The artist Steve Sabella, a close friend of Boullata's, told The Art Newspaper: "I had dinner with Kamal three weeks ago just before I left for Jerusalem, the city of our birth. He looked young, energised, inspired, speaking about many projects. From the moment we met in 2002, any conversation with Kamal ignited my imagination. Only beauty emerges when one delves into his art and listens to his carefully chosen words -words that I felt always came out from the heart. Kamal inspired thousands in his life, and I do feel his journey has just begun. Kamal's departure is not a loss, but a reward to all humanity."
