A decade ago Dutch artist Niels Shoe Meulman coined the word Calligraffiti for the title of his exhibition, which aimed at approaching traditional handwriting with contemporary mediums and – as he claimed – a metropolitan attitude. Since then, the word Calligraffiti started to define a specific form of artistic expression employing calligraphy, typography and graffiti, and it evolved considerably under the influence of artists merging new techniques and alphabets.
The program “Calligraffiti” is part of ikonoTV’s monthly focus “Masters of Ink” (April 2017) and shows two different approaches to calligraphy and urban art by focusing on the practice of USUGROW and Stohead.
