Arabic Type and Calligraphy

I've been interested in Islamic art for a while. These art some artists who use type as their primary medium.

Hassan Massoudy- Iraqi born calligrapher living in France. Massoudy often combines his calligraphy with poety and dance.

Julien Breton aka Kalaam- French calligrapher who uses the "light-graff" process.

Reza Abedini- Iranian graphic designer who uses type in his poster designs.
